There are no other residents or fellows competing for surgical experience. The Fellow will be fully integrated in Moffitt’s multi-disciplinary thoracic clinics including direct exposure to related medical and radiation oncology as well as interventional pulmonology. It is expected of the fellow to participate in clinical research projects under the guidance of senior faculty members.
