Curriculum and Research

Learning environment

The AHNCI CGSO fellowship prioritizes professionalism and leadership skills in its fellows.  Fellows lead weekly tumor board discussions in a Metastatic, Molecular and Rare Tumor Board dedicated to the care of complex patients seen in our clinics. Mentored leadership opportunities are provided on institutional committees including the CoC Cancer Committee and the Institutional Review Board. The former is the context in which the ACGME-designated, specialty-specific QI project and community education requirements are met, with ample support from AHNCI staff. Education in ethical principles related to surgical oncology, as well as diversity, equity and inclusion themes in surgical oncology are stressed in the weekly didactic curriculum and journal club article selection.
