Endocrine Surgery Fellowship

The Endocrine Surgery Fellowship at NYU Grossman School of Medicine is a one-year, multidisciplinary program accredited by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. The goal of our program is to train the next leaders in advanced academic endocrine surgery.

We accept one fellow each year. Meet our current fellows.

The Endocrine Surgery Fellowship allows fellows to gain a thorough understanding of the work-up, operative management, and postoperative care of patients with endocrine disorders that require surgery. During the program, fellows work under the supervision of faculty who are internationally recognized experts in endocrine surgery and manage services composed of residents, advanced practice providers, and medical students.

The fellowship rotation schedule reflects multiple facets of endocrine surgery including treatment of diseases of the following organ systems:

  • thyroid
  • parathyroid
  • adrenal
  • endocrine pancreas

Our approximate annual case volume is as follows:

  • thyroid: >700
  • parathyroid: >300
  • adrenal: >60
  • pancreas: >50
  • neck dissection: >30

Our program is structured to give fellows increasing autonomy as they progress through the year, functioning as a junior attending whose responsibilities include managing the endocrine surgery clinic and multidisciplinary thyroid neoplasia clinic, staffing operative cases, providing resident and student education, and participating in clinical research.

Clinical skills highlighted by the program include instruction and proficiency of ultrasound, fine-needle thyroid biopsy, intraoperative laryngeal nerve monitoring, flexible laryngoscopy and laryngeal ultrasound, transoral thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy, minimally invasive adrenalectomy, and radiofrequency ablation. Our fellows also play a leading role in our Endocrine Surgery Research Program, specializing in multidisciplinary clinical and health services research.

Fellows in our program rotate to the following sites in our system: NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital and Kimmel Pavilion and our affiliate NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, all on First Avenue in Manhattan, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island.

Academic Responsibilities

As the senior trainee on surgical rotations, fellows are expected to interact with residents and NYU Grossman School of Medicine students, maximizing their educational experience through teaching.


Fellows are required to complete a minimum of one project under the guidance of our faculty that will be published; presented at an appropriate local, regional, or national conference; or both.


Fellows receive four weeks of vacation time, a book fund, and, pending approval, a travel stipend for conference attendance.

How to Apply

To apply for our program, fellows must be on track to complete an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited general surgery training program and be eligible to sit for the American Board of Surgery examinations.

Applications for the Endocrine Surgery Fellowship are accepted through the annual match process sponsored by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons.
