Lars Leksell Radiosurgery Fellowships
The Leksell Gamma Knife Society is proud to announce the Lars Leksell Radiosurgery Fellowships. The Fellowships are designed to allow young neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists the opportunity to learn state of the art radiosurgery from a leading radiosurgery center. They are instituted in memory of Professor Lars Leksell, pioneer of modern radiosurgery and inventor of the Leksell Gamma Knife.
Fellowships are awarded annually to promising board certified (or international equivalent) neurosurgeons or radiation oncologists who have completed their residency training within 5 years at the time of application. Each Fellowship funds three months' stay at a pre-eminent radiosurgery center in either the United States or France and also in Morocco.
Due to the global travel restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 winners of the Lars Leksell Radiosurgery Fellowship have not been able to complete their training. At the time of writing, it is not possible to know if they can visit their host centers even during 2021. This also applies to the winners of the 2021 fellowship program.
We have therefore decided to pause the next fellowship cycle.
