Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, a member of the prestigious National Comprehensive Cancer Network is pleased to be accepting applications for its Thoracic Surgery Oncology Fellowship.

This fellowship will provide a concentrated experience to the general thoracic surgeon in the area of advanced thoracoscopic and other minimally invasive techniques as well as immersion in a center devoted entirely to oncology care. Candidates must have completed a cardiothoracic residency or similar training and have the credentials to attain New York State licensure.

The thoracic surgery service at Roswell Park Cancer Institute performs a broad spectrum of surgical procedures for both malignant and benign conditions of the lung, esophagus and mediastinum and consists of six full-time surgical faculty. The thoracic surgical experience will focus on, but not be limited to advanced thoracoscopic (VATS) lung resection techniques, robotic assisted thoracic procedures, complex airway reconstruction, and minimally invasive esophagectomy. There are opportunities for exposure to interventional pulmonary and pleural procedures as well. Elective rotations tailored to candidates’ interests are available during the one-year fellowship, and include focused clinical experiences in thoracic radiation oncology, imaging, pathology, and/or and interventional bronchoscopy. Participation in approved personal or ongoing departmental laboratory or clinical research projects is required.

Those completing this training program will be prepared to assume a prominent role in a center devoted to advanced multidisciplinary thoracic oncologic care including academic health care environments.
