Christian Juan Cantillano Malone, MD

Dr. Malone received his MD from the University of Antofagasta in Chile. He was the first graduate from his University to receive a full scholarship to the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, one of the biggest teaching hospitals in Chile where he entered the neurosurgical training program. Upon obtaining his specialty licence in neurosurgery he started working at the Pediatric General Hospital in Santiago de Chile serving a population of over l.5 million people. That same year he was awarded a pediatric clinical fellowship in neurosurgery at the National Institute of Neurosurgery Alfonso Asenjo. This is one of the biggest teaching hospitals in Chile and serves over 6,000 pediatric outpatient consults per year and 1,000 pediatric OR cases. Dr. Malone applied and was accepted into the Pediatric Neurosurgical Program at SickKids for the academic year 2012-2013. He chose SickKids because of its international reputation for excellence and his interest in the subspecialty of Epilepsy surgery. Dr. Malone’s expectations from this fellowship are to learn the nuances of pediatric neurosurgery and to develop his teaching skills for the next generation of neurosurgeons in Chile.
