2nd Year Fellows
1st Year Fellows
The first year of the fellowship begins with non-surgical rotations on Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Pathology services. An uninterrupted block is reserved for clinical and/or basic research. Fellows are encouraged to participate in bench research activities in any of the many active laboratories at the Center. Some are based in the Department, some in the Division of Medical Sciences, and others are part of the Institute for Cancer Research. Fellows are expected to participate in and to publish results of surgical clinical trials. During the first year, fellows will attend selected multidisciplinary clinics.
The second year of the fellowship consists of rotations on our GI, HPB, Breast, and Head & Neck services. There is extensive exposure to colorectal, liver, gastric, pancreas, head & neck, melanoma, sarcoma, breast, thoracic, and gynecologic oncology. Many of our cases are performed using minimally invasive techniques including: laparoscopic, single-incision laparoscopic (SILS), robotic, and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Fellows actively participate in clinics to facilitate continuity of patient care and education.
