Surgical Oncology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Program Overview

The ACGME accredited Complex General Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital offers a two-year fellowship position to one highly-qualified physician each academic year. As a fellow, you will develop the technical skills necessary for complex surgical procedures and will understand the multidisciplinary care of cancer patients. Surgical oncologists consider each procedure within the context of an optimal treatment plan that may incorporate chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and/or alternative approaches.

You will gain in-depth exposure to the surgical component of oncological care as well as the opportunity to participate in a clinically busy and academically rigorous unit to obtain clinical research. We are particularly interested in treatment of hepatobiliary and pancreatic malignancies.

Our fellows graduate with competency in these areas:

  • Evaluation, surgical management, and follow-up of patients with a wide range of malignancies within the context of a multidisciplinary cancer team
  • Performance of clinical research in surgical oncology, with proven understanding of study design, methods of data analysis, and presentation of results
  • Experience with a wide range of complex surgical procedures (both laparoscopic and open), as well as other core surgical oncology procedures (e.g., sentinel node biopsy for breast cancer and melanoma, radiofrequency ablation of hepatic tumors, wide excision of cutaneous malignancy)

The new appointment cycle starts August 1, 2017.
