Advanced Thoracic Surgical Oncology Fellowship

Advanced Thoracic Surgical Oncology Fellowship

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers a non-accredited advanced training opportunity in complex thoracic surgery for individuals who will have completed a cardiothoracic training program, are board certified or board eligible (or their equivalent), and are interested in an additional intensive experience in advanced thoracic surgical oncology. The Thoracic Surgical Oncology Fellowship is a one-year program designed to provide in-depth exposure to the multidisciplinary treatment of all types of thoracic malignancies. The fellow will spend the entire duration on the Thoracic Surgery Service. Depending on interest and availability, the fellow may have the opportunity to spend one to two months of elective time on allied services such as GI, medical oncology, or radiation oncology, or on research. The fellow should be capable of leading a multidisciplinary effort in thoracic oncology by the time he or she graduates.
