overview of fellowship
This one-year program is designed to combine the best features of a personal mentorship with the clinical, research, and teaching opportunities of a top-ranked, tertiary-care academic center. Two clinical fellows are accepted each year.
Clinical Rotations: Each fellow will spend two 3-month rotations with Dr. Metson and two 3-month rotations with Drs Gray and Holbrook.
Weekly Schedule: Fellows will spend approximately 2 days in the O.R., 2 days in the clinic, and 1 day involved with direct research/teaching responsibilities each week.
Research Responsibilities: The development and execution of quality clinical and basic science research projects in the field of rhinology are a priority. As such, fellows have protected research time.
Diversity of Cases: Fellows will participate in over 300 surgical cases during the year, as they receive comprehensive training in minimally invasive approaches to the paranasal sinuses, orbit, and skull base. Procedures will include primary and revision surgery for inflammatory sinusitis, advanced frontal sinus techniques, orbital and optic nerve decompressions, DCRs, and endoscopic skull base procedures (CSF leak and encephalocele repairs, tumor resections). For examples of cases done during this fellowship visit www.sinusvideos.com.
Call Schedule: Fellows will take call from home approximately 4 weeknights and 1 weekend per month.
Additional Information: Fellows will have a direct role in resident education in the operating room, as well as at weekly clinics and conferences. Travel expenses will be covered for academic meetings and courses attended during the Fellowship.
