Position Type

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group, Department of Otolaryngology, is currently seeking a fellow in Advanced Head & Neck Oncologic Surgery and Microvascular Reconstruction. This is a one-year operative program with broad exposure, however two-year commitments are also considered based on the fellow's future ambitions and research interests. Mission electives are strongly encouraged.

Currently, 7 full-time fellowship trained Head & Neck surgical oncologist practice at Loma Linda, 4 performing microvascular reconstructions. Two additional Head & Neck oncologic surgeons practice at our VA facility. Two endoscopic skull based surgeons, two facial plastic/reconstructive surgeons, and two laryngologist help augment the fellow's experience. Advanced cases will be covered by the fellow including: major head and neck ablative cases, microvascular reconstructions, TOLMS/TORS, endoscopic skull base surgery, open/craniofacial surgery, advanced trauma, and advanced skin cancer reconstructions. A blended ablative and reconstructive experience is crucial, with fellow's preference determining the exact case mix. The fellowship also includes participation in thyroid/parathyroid surgeries, including minimally invasive techniques, re-operative surgery, and surgery for non-localizing disease.

The fellow works with Loma Linda University assisting faculty with cases. Fellows choose their cases with limited mentor over-site to ensure a fellow directed, balanced experience. Intraoperative resident teaching and limited research is expected. The fellow may also assist at the VA or county hospital if interested in specific cases.

No call or clinic responsibilities exist; this is a surgical fellowship, with a focus on operative experience. A California Medical License is required.
