Global Online Fellowship

  • The Fellowship

    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.
