Surgical Oncology Research and Cancer Immunotherapy Fellowships


The Fellowships in Surgical Oncology Research and Cancer Immunotherapy at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) encompass two time-honored programs combining bench-side research in surgical oncology with training in clinical research through direct patient care.  The unique environment of the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) allows for direct bedside-to-bench and bench-to-bedside translational research under the direction of world leaders in surgical oncology.

Two- and three-year research programs are available.

Description of Fellowships



Surgical Oncology Research Fellowship

This 2-year fellowship includes 18 months of bench laboratory experience in one of the many NCI laboratories and 6 months of clinical rotations over three surgical oncology subspecialties. Clinical research opportunities are available over the entire 2-year period. Additional optional research years may be available.


Fellowship in Cancer Immunotherapy

This 3-year fellowship incorporates an additional year of clinical experience in the management of patients undergoing cell-based cancer immunotherapy developed in the Surgery Branch of the NCI. Basic science experience is dedicated to work in one of the multiple immunotherapy laboratories within the NCI and participation in this fellowship is complemented by additional didactic opportunities in cancer immunotherapy.

All CCR residents and clinical fellows train at the 240-bed NIH Clinical Center, internationally recognized as the premier hospital dedicated to translational research and clinical care. Elective rotations offer residents and clinical fellows the opportunity to have direct experience in the care of patients enrolled in investigational protocols in the disciplines allergy and immunology, anatomic pathology, critical care medicine/internal medicine, hematopathology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, and transfusion medicine. Participants will have first-hand exposure to the design, conduct, and management of clinical trials. 

All of CCR’s clinical training programs are part of Graduate Medical Education at NIH


How to Apply


The Surgical Oncology Fellowship commences on July 1st. Applications are accepted throughout the year. A statement of interest in the program, curriculum vitae and three (3) letters of recommendation can be sent directly to the Program Administrator. Alternatively, interested applicants may submit materials through the NIH Graduate Medical Education page.


For More Information

Weekly Clinical Conference

Weekly departmental meeting similar to a Grand Rounds and Morbidity/Mortality conference focusing on management of challenging cases of the NCI Surgical Oncology Clinical Service.

Surgical Oncology Fellows’ Journal Club

Monthly, fellow-run Surgical Oncology Journal Club focusing on seminal and current studies across general, thoracic and endocrine surgical oncology.

Surgical Oncology Clinical Research Meeting

Bi-monthly, clinical research think-tank focused on the development and support of clinical research projects for fellows.

Multidisciplinary Oncology Meetings

Multiple clinically and translationally oriented meetings focus on care of complex general surgical oncology, thoracic and endocrine diseases:
