Objectives of the Program: The endocrine and metabolic surgery fellowship at Weill Cornell aims to prepare surgeons to be academic endocrine surgeons through a combination of expert clinical care and exposure to basic and clinical research. Fellows should graduate with competence in endocrine and metabolic surgery.
Highlights of the Fellowship: The fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian, Weill Cornell Medicine aims to provide a broad experience in endocrine and metabolic surgery. Rotations will include time on endocrine surgery, minimally invasive and bariatric/metabolic surgery and surgical oncology. Our current case volumes include over 350 thyroidectomies, 200 parathyroidectomies, 50 adrenalectomies, 50 pancreatectomies and 250 bariatric/GI metabolic procedures per year. There are active laboratory and clinical projects in all facets of endocrine surgery, as well as metabolic/bariatric surgery. Exposure to endocrinology and nuclear medicine will be integrated into the fellowship.
