The North American Skull Base Society (NASBS) is proud to announce the launch of the Skull Base Fellowship Match for Neurosurgery Residents interested in pursuing a career in skull base surgery.
The idea of creating a match system for adjudicating skull base fellowship positions, has been suggested several years ago to coordinate and organize the fellowship positions, provide transparency in the application process, and ultimately allow applicants and programs to achieve the best possible match. The NASBS Board of Directors is committed to creating a pathway to neurosurgery skull base programs. To view the NASBS Neurosurgery Skull Base Fellowship Match Program Bylaws, click here.
