URMC, Roswell Park announce fellowship program

Rochester Business Journal
June 27, 2013

The University of Rochester Medical Center and Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo plan jointly to mount a two-year cancer surgery fellowship, URMC officials said Thursday.

Funded by a National Cancer Institute training grant, Roswell Park has run a successful cancer surgery fellowship program. It began talks over a joint fellowship program with URMC last spring following the American Board of Surgery’s 2012 decision to make surgical oncology a board-certified subspecialty.

To win certification for its cancer surgery fellows, Roswell needed the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s stamp of approval. And in addition to requirements specific to cancer surgery, the council demands a five-year general surgery residency.
 
Roswell Park president and CEO Donald Trump M.D. called the program “an opportunity to not only strengthen our fellowship program, but also strengthen the relationship between our two institutions.”

The joint fellowship comes some three years after URMC’s James P. Wilmot Cancer Center and Roswell Park ended a long rivalry with the inking of a joint-research pact. Scientists from the Buffalo and Rochester institutions are cooperating on 16 projects.
