|Surgical Oncology||8 Months|
|Minimally Invasive and Upper GI Surgery||1 Month|
The fellow will be exposed to a wide variety of conditions during the duration of the fellowship. This will allow acquisition of advanced technical and clinical skills essential for the professional clinical care of patients. This is due to the referral nature of our facility, as well as attraction of complex cases by the nationally and internationally renowned faculty. The fellow's time will be spent between core surgical oncology rotations, as well as minimally invasive. Rotations are typically shared with a junior general surgery resident with equal responsibility in the care of patients. Fellows are not required to take in-house calls but are responsible for the management of patients at all time with faculty supervision.
