Objectives of the program:

Provide advanced endocrine surgical training and research opportunities in the field of Endocrine Surgery. This will be conducted in an academic department emphasizing preoperative evaluation, operative skills and long-term management. The fellowship is designed for individuals who have completed their general surgery training and seek to develop a career in endocrine surgery. 

Highlights of the fellowship:

Intensive endocrine surgery training with experienced endocrine surgeons (Tobias Carling, MD, PhD, Glenda Callender, MD, and Courtney Gibson, MD) emphasizing the multidisciplinary care of the patient. Our wealth of endocrine surgical cases will afford the fellow extensive operative experience combined with advanced techniques including minimally invasive parathyroidectomy under local, cervical block anesthesia, laparoscopic (transabdominal and retroperitoneoscopic) adrenalectomy and neck dissections. The fellow will participate in clinical and translational research and, under appropriate mentorship, make substantive contributions to the scientific literature. The fellow will learn ultrasound and routine flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy. The fellow will actively participate in weekly endocrine multispecialty conferences and interact extensively with endocrinology, cytology, surgical pathology, sonography and nuclear medicine. Depending on academic interest the fellow can participate in the research activities of the Yale Endocrine Neoplasia Laboratory.
