Complex Surgical Oncology Fellowship Overview

The program was initiated in July 1988, was approved by The Society of Surgical Oncology in 1995 and most recently approved by ACGME in 2012.

It is directed towards candidates who have completed an approved general surgical residency and are eligible for the American Board of Surgery examination. The principal program objective is to develop academic surgical oncologists who will possess mastery of the technical and cognitive aspects of our specialty. Intensive experience with basic or clinical oncologic research is encouraged. One fellow per year is admitted to the program.
