Objectives of the Program:

We aim to train the next generation of leaders in endocrine surgery.

Highlights of the Fellowship:

Our fellowship is part of a high volume endocrine surgery program (total annual case volume 900-1000 cases) with several distinct features. The fellow has exposure to four sites: a high volume quaternary care center, a public hospital with a fellow run clinic and OR, a private practice setting, and a VA hospital. The fellow will also get exposure to one of the highest volume Transoral endocrine surgery programs in the country. In addition we have a high volume of thyroid radiofrequency ablations. There is also ongoing NIH funded research that the fellow is welcome to participate in as well.

Expected volumes for the fellow are as follows:
Average Thyroid Case Volume: 100
Average Parathyroid Case Volume: 100 
Average Adrenal Case Volume: 20

We will provide additional cases for fellows who wish to enhance their training in a specific technique.

Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)

Number of evaluation & Management of NET (enteric and pancreatic only) cases per year: 10
Number of operative NET (enteric and pancreatic only) cases per year: 10
Number of NET case discussions per year: 5

The fellow has an opportunity to participate in a Multidisciplinary NET (enteric and pancreatic only) Tumor Board which meets monthly.

If the fellow desires, there is an internal opportunity to engage in a more robust NET experience with a rotation with the hepatobiliary service, which is optional but would provide a much larger PNET experience.


International Medical Graduates 

Our program is not able to accept international applicants at this time.

Special Considerations:

One fellowship position is offered each year, with the potential for extension to a second year to focus on further research and academic development. Candidates should be board eligible in general surgery and should apply through the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons fellowship match.
