Objectives of the Program:

The endocrine and metabolic surgery fellowship at Weill Cornell aims to prepare surgeons to be academic endocrine surgeons through a combination of expert operative and clinical care, as well as exposure to basic and clinical research. Fellows graduate with competence in comprehensive endocrine surgery and significant exposure to metabolic surgery.

Highlights of the Fellowship:

The fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian, Weill Cornell Medicine aims to provide a broad experience in endocrine and metabolic surgery. Rotations will include time on endocrine surgery, minimally invasive and bariatric/metabolic surgery and surgical oncology. Our current case volumes include over 350 thyroidectomies, 200 parathyroidectomies, 50 adrenalectomies, 50 pancreatectomies and 250 bariatric/GI metabolic procedures per year. There are active laboratory and clinical projects in all facets of endocrine surgery, as well as metabolic/bariatric surgery. Exposure to endocrinology and nuclear medicine is integrated into the fellowship.
