The Fellowship in Head & Neck Oncology is an intensive, advanced training program designed to cultivate expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and multidisciplinary management of head and neck cancers. Spanning 12 months, this fellowship offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes in-depth clinical experience, advanced surgical training, and opportunities for significant research and academic development. Fellows will master complex surgical techniques, such as tumor resections, neck dissections, and microvascular free flap reconstructions, while also gaining proficiency in non-surgical therapies like radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.

The program emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach, involving regular participation in tumor boards and collaborative care with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other specialists. Didactic learning through lectures, seminars, and case discussions is a core component, ensuring fellows are well-versed in the latest advancements and best practices in head and neck oncology.

Fellows will engage in rigorous research projects, contributing to clinical studies, and are encouraged to publish their findings and present at national and international conferences. Evaluation throughout the fellowship includes direct observation, formal assessments, and reviews of research progress and patient care.

The program provides practical training and expert mentorship, alongside a CMEs benefits. Graduates will emerge as highly skilled, knowledgeable leaders ready to advance the field of head and neck oncology, improving patient outcomes through innovative and compassionate care.

  1. Frequent Procedures for the Head and Neck Area
    By identifying and analyzing these sentinel lymph nodes, medical professionals gain crucial insights into the extent of cancer spread, aiding in the accurate staging of the disease. Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped structures that are part of the body’s
    immune system and are responsible for filtering lymphatic fluid. A lymph node biopsy is typically performed to investigate abnormalities such as enlargement, which may indicate infection, inflammation, or the presence of cancer cells.  A tracheostomy is a surgical procedure that creates an artificial opening in the neck, directly into the windpipe (trachea). This opening, called a tracheostoma, allows for the insertion of a breathing tube (tracheostomy tube) to establish an alternative airway. The submandibular gland is one of the major salivary glands located beneath the lower jaw, or mandible. Excision refers to the surgical removal of this gland, which may be necessary to address various medical conditions affecting the gland. 
  2. Thyroid and Parathyroid Tumors
    It covers essential aspects such as the location of the thyroid gland in the neck, its function in hormone regulation, and common disorders such as thyroid nodules, goiter, and thyroid cancer. Understanding the surgical anatomy and pathology of the thyroid gland is crucial for healthcare professionals to effectively diagnose and treat thyroid-related conditions.  Thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove part or all of the thyroid gland. It is indicated for various thyroid conditions, including benign and malignant
    tumors, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), and large goiters causing symptoms such as difficulty swallowing or breathing. Here, the focus is on the diagnostic process for parathyroid disorders and the methods used to locate the specific parathyroid glands affected. This may involve imaging studies such as ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI, as well as specialized tests like sestamibi scan or parathyroid
    hormone (PTH) assay. Accurate diagnosis and localization are essential for planning appropriate treatment strategies.
  3. Neck Disorders
    This section offers a comprehensive examination of the anatomical components within the neck region and their associated pathological conditions. It delves into the intricate details of muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and other relevant structures crucial for surgical procedures in the neck.  emphasizes fundamental concepts and principles that form the basis of surgical procedures conducted in the neck region. It encompasses a wide array of topics, including techniques for accessing and maneuvering through the intricate anatomy of the neck. Additionally, it covers critical considerations related to tissue handling, achieving hemostasis (control of bleeding), and ensuring optimal wound closure. Understanding these surgical concepts is paramount for ensuring the safety and efficacy of neck surgeries.
  4. Tumors of the Tongue and Floor of the Mouth
    This section provides a comprehensive exploration of the anatomical structures relevant to surgical procedures performed in the tongue and floor of the mouth. It includes detailed discussions on the muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and other structures essential for
    understanding surgical techniques and approaches in this specific area of the body. Participants delves into the fundamental principles and techniques utilized in the surgical management of tumors affecting the tongue and floor of the mouth. It covers a wide range of
    topics, including surgical approaches for tumor resection, tissue handling techniques, methods for achieving hemostasis (control of bleeding), and strategies for wound closure. Focused on tumors classified as T1 lesions, which are small and localized within the tongue or
    floor of the mouth. This section discusses treatment options such as surgical excision or minimally invasive procedures. 
  5. Tumors of the Larynx and Hypopharynx
    In this section, we delve deeply into the anatomical structures pertaining to surgical procedures conducted in the larynx and hypopharynx. This exploration encompasses a thorough examination of the tissues, nerves, blood vessels, and other anatomical components crucial for understanding the intricacies of surgical interventions in this specific anatomical region.  We address the occurrence of pharyngeal fistulas, which are abnormal openings or passages that develop in the pharynx following surgical procedures such as laryngectomy or laryngopharyngectomy. We explore the etiology of pharyngeal fistulas, which may include surgical complications, radiation therapy, or underlying diseases. Diagnostic methods for identifying pharyngeal fistulas, such as imaging studies or endoscopic evaluation, are discussed.
