Goals of the Program

Goals are to provide advanced training in head and neck oncology including not only patient management, but also appreciation of the research foundation upon which the specialty exists. The surgical experience will include exposure to all current techniques including microvascular and skull base resection. Familiarity with medical oncology, radiation therapy, and rehabilitation techniques will also be provided. 

This program is directed towards the development of future academic leaders in the field. In addition to instruction in the latest techniques in the management of the head and neck cancer patient, an appreciation of the research foundation upon which future developments depend will be established.
