Surgical Clinical Oncology Lectures

Fellows participate in a weekly one-hour Grand Round didactic session.  Fellows will also have the opportunity to organize the monthly journal club where new articles are presented. The fellows will also organize the monthly Surgical Oncology Case Conference to give opportunities to discuss a wide variety of interesting cases and surgical approaches.
