Dr. Moliterno graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Florida and went on to receive her medical degree from UF's College of Medicine with Honors in Research. She completed her internship and residency training in neurosurgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital where she served as Chief Resident. While at Yale, Dr. Moliterno developed a passion for Neuro-Oncology and devoted her research time to implementing clinical trials for brain tumor patients at Weill Cornell Medical College. Following graduation from residency, Dr. Moliterno completed a one-year clinical fellowship in neurosurgical oncology specializing in surgery for brain and spinal cord tumors at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. While her clinical interest is in the surgical management of all types of benign and malignant brain tumors, her particular expertise is in performing awake surgeries for complex tumors located in eloquent brain (i.e. speech and motor areas), as well as vestibular schwannomas and other tumors of the skull base. Her research interest is translational and focused on the development of personalized medicine for oncology patients.
