There are no current global standards of training, practice and level of care for patients with neoplasms of the Head and Neck. There are significant variations in the quality and levels of care in various geographic locations in the world. The goal of the global online fellowship is to create a program to teach and train young surgeons and test their knowledge and thought processes, through which relative uniformity of knowledge base and judgment are measured and certified for specialists, through online education with continuous updating and monitoring of their knowledge base.
The fellowship will involve a commitment of 2 years of self learning through a structured course curriculum, with periodic online examinations as the program progresses, until completion. During the course of the Fellowship the candidates will embark upon a 1 month observership and at the completion of the curriculum appear for an oral examination before an international panel of examiners. Upon successful completion of the oral examination a certificate will be issued recognizing the satisfactory completion of the course curriculum, and passing the examination.
Such certification will ensure that the candidates have acquired an established global standard of core knowledge, and matured their judgment process through self education and successful completion of all examinations.
A minimum of five years of surgical training following completion of medical school and Board certification (or equivalent) in the specialty of general surgery, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, or similar field in their country.
Current engagement in Head and Neck Surgery training or practice.
Certification and letter of support from the Head of the institution where the candidate conducts his/her clinical activities indicating a commitment by the candidate to the specialty of head and neck surgery and oncology, and current nature and tenure of employment.
A complete list of operative procedures performed during the preceding year showing a significant proportion (over 50%) of head and neck cancer/tumor cases, where the candidate was either the operating surgeon or first assistant.
Personal statement indicating commitment by the candidate to complete the Fellowship and future career goals to utilize the knowledge gained through this Fellowship.
