The Duke Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery Fellowship is a comprehensive training program in advanced noncardiac thoracic surgery, intended for those who have graduated from or intend to complete an ACGME cardiothoracic residency. Foreign medical graduates who do not plan to practice in the United States are also eligible. It is not intended as an alternative path to thoracic credentialing, but rather as an enhancement for specialized training in minimally invasive and robotic techniques, multidisciplinary thoracic and foregut oncology, and benign and malignant foregut surgery.
The fellowship will provide advanced training in all facets of minimally invasive general thoracic surgery techniques to graduates of cardiothoracic residency programs. Fellows gain broad, extensive experience in all aspects of general thoracic surgery, including both benign and malignant disease. A particular emphasis of the operative volume includes both minimally invasive lung resections, including wedge resections, segmentectomies, lobectomies, and pnuemonectomies, and minimally invasive esophageal resections. Operative experience will include robotic procedures of both the chest and the foregut.
