Head & Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery, and Thyroid/Parathyoid Surgery Fellowship

The Foundation selects one fellow per year to receive funding for a full-range, hands-on experience in surgical oncology, microvascular and reconstructive surgical techniques, and multidisciplinary patient management accredited at Mount Sinai Beth Israel’s Institute for Head, Neck, and Thyroid Cancers. This program was awarded accreditation by the American Head & Neck Society (AHNS) in 2010.
