Additional Oral/Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery Fellowship Training Program Information
The stipend will be commensurate with the appropriate PGY level.
Benefits are as set forth in the GME Policy Manual. All fellows receive the following benefits regardless of appointment classification: professional liability insurance through University covering claims related to duties performed as part of the fellowship, whether such claims arise during or after the fellow’s completion of the program; other insurance through the Student Health Benefits Office specifically for residents/fellows that provides medical insurance and optional dependent coverage, long-term and short-term disability insurance, life insurance, and optional dental insurance at the department’s cost along with a nominal cost to the fellow. Additional dependent care coverage must be paid entirely by the resident. See Office of Student Health Benefits website for additional details.
Fellows are required to take in house call on the day a patient is admitted to the ICU following an extensive oncologic resection. Additional in house call might be required for critically ill oncology patients.
Practice Privileges and Other Activities Outside the Education Program
No outside activities should infringe on the fellow’s commitment to the program. Any external practice needs the approval of the Fellowship Director.
Fellows should have a current Minnesota dental or medical license on commencement of the program and should have a DEA number at that time. See Minnesota Board of Dentistry for dental license and the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice for the medical license.
ACLS and BLS
Each fellow will be able to attend either the Annual AAOMS or a meeting focused on oncology when abstracts on research are being presented. Any other course or meeting which requires a leave of absence must be approved by the Fellowship Director. Fellows who conduct a research project under the direction of a faculty member and who submit an abstract which is accepted for presentation will be considered for funding to present the abstract.
