Objectives of the Program To educate and train future leaders in endocrine surgery. To provide in-depth experience in the clinical workup, operative treatment, and postoperative care of patients with endocrine surgical disorders. To promote outstanding clinical and basic science research in endocrine surgery and oncology.
Highlights of the Fellowship The UCSF Endocrine Surgery Fellowship offers a high-volume experience in thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and endocrine pancreas surgery. The breadth of cases that the fellow participates in ranges from straightforward thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal operations to complex lymph node dissections, reoperative surgery in the neck and abdomen, and advanced laparoscopic endocrine surgical operations. In addition to clinical work, the fellow is provided opportunities to pursue multiple research projects of his/her design and choosing, often in collaboration with non-surgical faculty and researchers at UCSF. Prior fellows have performed research in a broad variety of topics, including basic science, clinical trials, outcomes and health care quality, surgical technologies, global health, medical history, and medical informatics. Our fellows complete the year in our program with the necessary skills and knowledge to serve as leaders in endocrine surgery, and nearly all have obtained positions at major academic medical centers. Many of our recent graduates now serve as program directors and chiefs of endocrine surgery at their institutions.
