Objectives of the Program: To provide advanced training in Endocrine Surgery to surgeons who wish to pursue a career in this field. Fellows will develop mastery of the preoperative evaluation, intra-operative techniques, postoperative management, and pathophysiology associated with the care of patients with endocrine surgical disorders.
Highlights of the Fellowship: We offer a comprehensive, integrated program organized according to a formal curriculum and overseen by Dr. Aarti Mathur and Dr. Jason D. Prescott. Participating departments and divisions include Endocrine Surgery, Surgical Oncology, Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, Endocrinology, Cytopathology, Ultrasonography, and Nuclear Medicine. The annual caseload is comprised of over 750 thyroidectomies, parathyroidectomies and neck dissections, 30-40 adrenalectomies, and 10-20 gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumor resections. Additional advanced techniques in which the fellow will become proficient include minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, laparoscopic adrenalectomy, endoscopic transoral thyroidectomy, laryngoscopy, neck ultrasonography, and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration. The fellow will play a leadership role in organizing and overseeing our weekly endocrine surgery teaching conferences and will actively participate in our regular multi-disciplinary thyroid and adrenal case conferences. The fellow will also develop and execute clinical research projects as well as prepare associated abstracts/manuscripts for submission to professional academic meetings and peer-reviewed scientific journals.
