Training & Curriculum

The Complex Surgical Oncology Fellowship program includes 20 months of clinical rotations and four months of translational research.

Clinical Rotations

The clinical portion of the program is heavily weighted toward the strengths of the institution, focusing on complex gastrointestinal malignancies, pancreatic and hepatobiliary malignancies, breast cancer, melanoma, head and neck cancer, bone and soft-tissue sarcoma and foregut malignancies. In addition, trainees will rotate on gynecologic oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical pathology, and interventional radiology, with exposure to chemo-embolization and radiofrequency ablation. The program emphasizes coordinated multidisciplinary care which allows the trainee to be involved in all aspects of patient management.

The core curriculum includes weekly surgical grand rounds, didactic sessions in surgical oncology, specialty/tumor-specific meetings and conferences, and clinical research. New patients are presented at multidisciplinary tumor boards where pathology slides and images are reviewed with multiple attending physicians for discussion of multidisciplinary care.
