The endocrine surgery fellowship program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) offers intensive clinical training with a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreatic disease. We perform more than 800 operations per year of which fellows typically perform more than 300 cases (thyroidectomy, parathyroidectomy, neck dissection and adrenalectomy).
In addition to working with 10 different endocrine surgeons, fellows receive training from radiologists, pathologists, and endocrinologists. We provide a broad experience in complex endocrine surgical cases, including re-operative parathyroid surgery, minimally invasive adrenalectomy and neck dissections.
Fellows participate in weekly conferences devoted to endocrine surgery and in a monthly multidisciplinary conference. In addition to clinical responsibilities, fellows will participate in research initiatives in endocrine surgery.
