Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship
The Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship at the Saint John’s Cancer Institute provides a diverse and comprehensive exposure to the multidisciplinary aspects of breast cancer care and benign breast disease over a one-year period with a potential second year for continuation of clinical or basic science research.
During the surgical rotations, fellows will gain exposure to all breast reconstruction options including oncoplastic, implant, and tissue-based reconstruction. Additional rotations in breast rehabilitation, research, community service, psycho-oncology, social work, benign/high risk clinic, and genetics complete the fellows training.
Donald L. Morton Complex General Surgical Oncology Fellowship
The Donald L. Morton, MD Complex General Surgical Oncology Fellowship has a longstanding history of excellence in multidisciplinary cancer care and education, the institute continues to be a leader in training the next generation of leaders in the field of surgical oncology.
Neurosurgical Oncology Fellowship
The Brain Tumor Center, under the direction of Dr. Daniel F. Kelly, offers a one-year neurosurgical fellowship.
This training program focuses on endonasal endoscopic and keyhole surgical approaches, neuro-endoscopy, pituitary tumor management and multimodality neuro-oncology treatments.
Neurosurgical fellows also participate in clinical and/or translational research projects. The fellowship is integrated into the institute’s surgical oncology training program as well.
In collaboration with the Pacific Neuro Institute (PNI), Saint John’s Cancer Institute offers a focused, multidisciplinary and collaborative environment.
Translational Molecular Medicine Fellowship
This is a postdoctoral lab-based fellowship.
As pioneers in translational studies on “liquid biopsies” involving circulating tumor cells in multiple types of solid tumors, the fellowship program also consists of studying epigenetic mechanisms regulating solid tumors as well as pharmacogenomics and immunogenomic based prediction of response to therapy.
Applicants must be experienced in the field of translational molecular biology for solid tumors, particularly in translational genomics/epigenomics cancer studies. The institute accepts both domestic and international applicants.
Urologic Oncology Fellowship
This program provides world class, multidisciplinary training in genitourinary malignancies and urologic oncology research with innovative and cutting-edge technology.
Minimally invasive techniques are an important part of this program, in addition, Fellows are also trained in complex open surgical techniques, such as post-chemotherapy RPLND’s, nephrectomies, open cystectomies, and urinary tract reconstructions. Fellows also have opportunities to participate in multi-team procedures for abdominal and pelvic malignancies.
