Surgical Oncology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our two-year fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital trains you in the broad field of surgical oncology and in the multidisciplinary care of cancer patients. Surgical oncologists typically consider each procedure within the context of a larger treatment plan that often involves chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and alternative approaches.

You gain in-depth exposure to the surgical component of oncological care as well as the opportunity to participate in 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)

We accept one fellow each year.
