The membership of the North American Skull Base Society (NASBS) is a tremendous resource for the training of fellows, who are the future of the development of our specialty. The society has developed a registry of skull base fellowships that are offered by the society membership.
The society recognizes that we are a diverse and multidisciplinary group comprised of several different specialties, all of whom have significant interest and focus in the management of skull base neoplasia. Likewise, the nature and character of the various fellowships will represent and reflect their differences. In addition, we recognize that there will be variation between individual fellowship experiences resulting from the differences in the preceptor’s approaches and practices.
To post a Fellowship, please go to the Fellowship Registry Entry Form. You must be a member of NASBS to add a Fellowship to the Registry.
To edit an entry, please log in under the Member credentials used to add the entry to the registry and make edits to the listing.
To apply for Fellowship training, please contact the program directly.
If you need assistance or have questions, please contact NASBS Executive Director, Paula Kupiec, at [email protected].

|Laboratory Research Opportunities|
The program has a robust research program and infrastructure including a research coordinator as well as a dedicated research fellow. The fellow is required to participate in all research meetings which occur on a weekly basis as well as present at all major academic meetings. The rhinology department financially supports the fellow at all academic conferences. In addition we do have basic science research available to the fellow, however, the majority of the scientific research done by the faculty is regarding advanced technology. Currently the rhinology skull base team is involved with research regarding development of advanced visualization utilizing augmented and virtual reality, pain control using virtual reality, the use of virtual reality in medical student training and telementoring, ontologies in surgery
