About the program

The LLUH Complex General Surgical Oncology fellowship program is a two-year post -residency training program and accepts one fellow per year. During the first year, fellows spend five months dedicated to research and a month each in medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical pathology, and head and neck surgery.  They also spend 2 weeks in an elective dedicated to each fellow’s interest. The rest of the 14.5 months of training are spent in the core surgical oncology rotations. Training includes comprehensive management of melanoma, sarcoma, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, colorectal, breast, endocrine, esophageal, lung, complex pelvic and peritoneal surface malignancies.  Fellows are also trained in minimally invasive, robotic cancer resections.
