Our mission is to train thought leaders in urologic oncology, in a program emphasizing contemporary and future diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. The Fellow will gain advanced knowledge in imaging, targeted biopsy, and focal therapy as a part of a full urologic oncology program. Upon completion, the Fellow would take away the skills to initiate a similar program elsewhere.
The UCLA Department of Urology is pleased to offer a 1-year fellowship for a physician (graduate urologist preferred), who is interested in urologic oncology and advanced training in contemporary management of prostate cancer. The fellowship is a new component of the Institute of Urologic Oncology, within the Urology Department on the Westwood campus, and it is fully integrated with our 2-year SUO urologic oncology fellowship. CA licensure/eligibility a plus.
In addition to a busy oncology operative experience, the Fellow would receive in-depth training in targeted prostate biopsy, MRI interpretation, focal therapy, and minimally-invasive interventions for prostate cancer. Participation in the HDR (high-dose rate) brachytherapy program at UCLA, the largest in the U.S., would also be included. Customization of time allocation is possible. The fellowship is supported by ongoing R01 awards from the National Cancer Institute, including our SPORE in Prostate Cancer.
