Surgical Oncology Fellowship

The Surgical Oncology Fellowship at Colorado State University’s Flint Animal Cancer Center (FACC) is a one year clinical training appointment designed for veterinarians who have completed a 3-year American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) approved residency in small animal surgery and possess a strong interest in surgical oncology and research. This highly competitive Fellowship provides training in the area of surgical oncology and aims to solidify the trainee’s knowledge of the application of surgery into comprehensive cancer treatment.

Compared to a general surgeon, a surgical oncologist has specialized training and current knowledge of tumor biology and, importantly, the role of surgery in the multimodality treatment of cancer, particularly radiation therapy and chemotherapy, and clinical trials. Surgical oncologists treat a large volume of cancer patients and have experience in the management of both rare and common tumors.

Surgical oncology research at the FACC includes: limb sparing, cortical allografts, bone morphogenesis, osteogenesis, infection, tumor markers, drug delivery systems, isolated limb perfusion, preclinical drug testing, pharmacology, gene therapy, oncogenesis, radiation therapy, pathology and clinical oncology research. Clinical research projects are encouraged and supported as part of this program.

A position announcement is posted in the ACVIM and ACVS Journals during the months of November, December, and January. Applications are due by February 1st of each calendar year.

For further information please view the Surgical Oncology Fellowship announcement and/or contact: Drs. Nicole Ehrhart, Deanna Worley, or Bernard Seguin.
