Clinical Experience

The 20 months of clinical rotations that comprise the surgical oncology fellowship provide extensive exposure to all areas of general surgical oncology. The faculty has expertise in treating patients afflicted with a wide range of malignancies, and the fellows reap the benefits of this experience. This is the cornerstone of surgical oncology fellowship. The Louisville fellows will encounter and treat many patients with complex malignancies in a close, personal setting and develop one-on-one relationships with the faculty. It is these relationships and autonomy that foster growth in judgment and clinical excellence. Each fellow gains extensive operative experience in breast, melanoma, sarcoma, liver, pancreas, esophagus, and other GI cancers while at the University of Louisville.
