Fellowship in Urologic Oncology
The overall goal of this program is to train academic urologic oncologists who are: highly skilled surgeons and knowledgeable clinicians who are capable of establishing comprehensive academic urologic oncology programs at other teaching institutions. The training program focuses on developing basic academic, technical and judgmental skills, and a framework necessary for conducting effective cancer management, research, and teaching.
Fellowship in Urinary Tract and Pelvic Reconstruction
The purpose of the fellowship is to train academic reconstructive surgeons who are uniquely qualified to lead and participate in multidisciplinary reconstructive treatment of the oncology patient undergoing treatment for pelvic malignancy or attempting to achieve functional status after therapy. Clinically, this fellowship offers extensive experience in incontinence, urinary diversion, prosthetic urologic surgery and complex upper and lower urinary tract reconstruction. We work collaboratively with the Departments of Gynecologic Oncology, Surgical Oncology, Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery with the goal of improving the genitourinary outcomes in patients with pelvic malignancy. Additionally, we focus on evaluation and treatment of the urinary dysfunction developing in patients with non-pelvic malignancy during the course of treatment through the survivorship phase.
