Urologic Oncology Fellowship

The Ralph T. and Esther L. Warburton Foundation and Dr. Hugh Judge Jewett Fellowship 

This fellowship is a two-year program that provides comprehensive multidisciplinary training in all aspects of urologic cancer surgery, including open, laparoscopic and robotic-assisted techniques for disease management. Our goal is to train future leaders in academic urologic oncology to make significant contributions to the field. 

The program includes one year of clinical urologic oncology and one year of oncologic research. Fellows will have an opportunity to work directly with research faculty and clinicians who diagnose and manage urologic malignancies using the most up-to-date clinical and research skills. Our surgeons perform open and minimally invasive surgical procedures for the treatment of all urological malignancies and work closely with fellowship trainees.
