Breast Fellowship

The Breast Fellowship seeks to educate surgeons in the management of both benign and malignant breast disease. Graduating candidates should be confident in the skills acquired during their fellowship year and be trained to become leaders in either the academic or community setting.

Endocrine Surgery Fellowship

Our goals for the Endocrine Surgical Fellowship include helping fellows acquire knowledge and understanding of endocrine gland anatomy and normal and abnormal physiology and develop excellence in clinical acumen for endocrinopathies and develop knowledge in rare endocrine disorders, such as inherited syndromes.

Global Health Fellowship

The Duke Division of Emergency Medicine has partnered with the Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health and the Duke Global Health Institute to offer a Global Health Fellowship, a two-year advanced training program in global health for emergency physicians.

Head and Neck Fellowship

Duke offers a one-year American Head and Neck Society Advanced Training Council accredited Head and Neck Fellowship. The fellowship encompasses all aspects of H&N surgical and clinical care, allowing fellows to gain experience with traditional, laser and robotic extirpative techniques as well as microvascular and non-microvascular reconstruction. 

Speech Pathology Fellowship

As part of our educational mission, Duke Speech Pathology offers a year-long clinical fellowship (CF) position to speech-language pathologists who are pursuing certification by obtaining their Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

Urologic Oncology Fellowship

The Society of Urologic Oncology fellowship at Duke enables trainees to develop the skills and experience needed to become an outstanding urologic oncologist and researcher. Through the significant breadth and depth of clinical pathology, voluminous surgical caseload, and multidisciplinary approaches to oncology, we intend to develop the clinical and technical acumen of our graduates. 

Vascular Surgery Fellowship

The vascular surgery fellowship program includes training in open surgical techniques endovascular techniques, diagnostic modalities (MR, CT, ultrasound, and PVRs), and related fields (cardiology, hematology, interventional radiology). The curriculum is structured in an integrated fashion, so that the fellow rotates on these various disciplines throughout the two-year period, rather than concentrating exclusively on endovascular for a year and open surgery for a year.
