Head & Neck Surgical Oncology

A JCST Fellowship in Head & Neck Surgical Oncology is open to those who have achieved specialist registration in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Otolaryngology, and Plastic Surgery.

The Head & Neck Surgical Oncology Interface Fellowship is shaped to provide training in Head & Neck Surgical Oncology to a level above and beyond that provided within the parent specialty CCT training. By opening up access to cross-specialty working, it aims ultimately to generate expert ability and knowledge, suitable for provision of care at the level of Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Consultant Surgeon (Core Member) status.

The core substance of Head & Neck Surgical Oncology training is consolidated in nine Key Topics which form the spine of Head & Neck cancer surgical management principles in modern clinical practice as provided by MDTs UK-wide.

Exposure to specialist areas is available by choosing three Advanced Topics from a specified range covering the full remit of current & developing Head & Neck surgical practice.
