Fellowship in Complex General Surgical Oncology

Fellowship in Complex General Surgical Oncology

The Fellowship in Complex General Surgery Oncology at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell is a two-year ACGME accredited training program, led by an experienced and diverse team of full-time faculty members.

Throughout the entirety of their training, our fellows will receive personalized attention while splitting time at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital, two of the most technologically advanced and well-resourced tertiary and quaternary referral centers in the region, and Huntington Hospital, recently named the number one community hospital in New York State by US News & World Report’s 2019-2020 Best Hospitals. Additionally, there will be consistent exposure to the ambulatory patient care setting at the Northwell Health Cancer Institute/Center for Advanced Medicine, giving fellows a wide range of experience in both basic and complex pre- and post-operative issues encountered by our patients.

The Northwell Health Cancer Institute sees more than 16,000 cancer patients annually. Northwell Health is also nationally recognized for expertise in robotic surgery, being the first health system to receive the Network of Excellence in Robotic Surgery designation. Through this training program, young professionals will be able to immerse themselves at the third largest secular health care system in the country, acquiring first-hand experience in all the aspects of surgical oncology critical to becoming a leader in the field. Our fellowship program is unique in its large complement of faculty with a 12:1 staff to fellow ratio. All members of our faculty are board certified in surgical oncology or allied fields and their collective experiences run the full gamut of complex general surgical oncology. This gives our fellows access to a diverse knowledge base and experiences, which serves to shape their own interests and career path. Each member of our faculty works closely with our fellows, performing rounds alongside them and meeting with them regularly to evaluate progress. Several members of our faculty were early adopters of robotic cancer surgery and have extensive experience performing every type of major abdominal operation in a minimally invasive fashion, including the Whipple procedure.
