Head & Neck Oncology—Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

The Division of Head and Neck Surgery at NYU Langone offers a two-year fellowship in Head and Neck Oncology—Reconstructive Surgery to train subspecialty surgeons in this continually evolving field. In our program, one of a few in the country, we offer dual training in oncological and reconstructive surgery for managing complex head and neck malignancies.

Fellows receive advanced training with an experienced team of plastic surgeons and oral maxillofacial surgeons at NYU Langone’s Head and Neck Center, NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System.

As a fellow, you work alongside faculty from the Division of Head and Neck Surgery, gaining intensive experience in a variety of complex head and neck surgical procedures, including minimally invasive transoral laser microsurgery, transoral robotic surgery, and endoscopic procedures. You also learn to perform innovative reconstructive techniques using virtual surgical planning and three-dimensional modeling to reconstruct both bony and soft tissue defects with microvascular free tissue transfer.

During your training, you share call responsibilities with department faculty members, participate in resident training, and attend weekly head and neck oncology conferences and grand rounds. You also must engage in clinical research projects. Upon completion of your fellowship, you have the skills necessary to pursue head and neck oncology and microvascular surgery at an academic institution.
