One of Sylvester’s goals is to provide an environment for academically oriented physicians that will enable them to develop into future leaders in clinical investigation, research, and teaching. One component of the educational curriculum consists of core competencies and broad-based lecture topics on clinical, basic, and translational research.

Overview of the Fellowship Program

The SUO-Accredited Urologic Oncology Fellowship provides comprehensive training in all areas of oncology including open and minimally invasive surgical approaches for disease management. This is a two year fellowship: 1 year consists of mentored research in basic, translational science, or outcomes research and 1 year is focused on clinical training in urologic oncology.

The University of Miami has a diverse and experienced faculty that provides training in all areas of urologic oncology. We have the highest robotic urologic surgical volume in the southeastern United States. Fellows will have the opportunity to gain exposure working with specialists in a multidisciplinary approach to disease management in a variety of areas including radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, and biostatistics/epidemiology.

Developed for the University of Miami K12 Calabresi Scholars and modeled after the AACR-ASCO Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop (Vail), fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in a Design and Management of Cancer Clinical Trials Course leading to the development of a clinical trial protocol ready for IRB submission.

This fellowship is recognized by the Society of Urologic Oncology and fellows will be eligible to apply for membership in the SUO upon completion of the program.
