Objectives for the Urologic Oncology Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine are to develop advanced clinical experience in the broad range of urologic oncologic diseases, including the diagnosis, non-surgical and management, post-operative care and long-term follow-up. The fellow will acquire advanced experience in urinary tract reconstruction with use of intestinal segments, particularly in the setting of radical oncologic surgery.
The fellow will become proficient in a multidisciplinary approach to urologic cancer with familiarity of radiation oncology, medical oncology, uroradiology, uropathology, enterostomal therapy, and social service.
This fellowship provides training for an academic career with participation in translational and basic research (if appropriate), presentations at national meetings and publications in peer-reviewed journals. The fellow gains experience in all aspects of cancer clinical trials, working within the Texas Medical Center, one of the largest medical centers in the country.
The program has been in existence since 1996. We accept one fellow per year.
