The Head and Neck Surgery fellowship blends an educational program with the responsibilities of a junior staff physician. The Head and Neck Fellowship is a one-year program accredited by the American Head and Neck Society focused on head and neck oncologic surgery. Two positions are available. Fellows will develop expertise in head and neck ablative surgery and reconstruction. High volumes of skull base surgery and microvascular reconstructive surgery are available, and fellows will be well trained in both of these areas. There is also opportunity for sub-specialty focus on either of these areas. A second year for increased sub-specialization or laboratory research is optional. It is expected that, over the course of the fellowship, the fellow will develop the ability to perform microvascular cases independently. Our goal is to train surgeons who will subsequently take positions at referral centers as tertiary head and neck surgeons. This is a hands-on surgical experience with opportunity to function independently and a high surgical volume.
The American Head and Neck Society uses the Centralized Matching Program to streamline the fellowship application process. For more information go to American Head and Neck Society.
