The University of South Florida Orthopaedic Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship at Moffitt Cancer Center is a one year program for individuals who have completed an orthopaedic residency and who desire to have advanced training in the diagnosis, management and follow up care for patients with musculoskeletal tumors. The program is based at the campus of the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, the only NCI designated cancer center based in the state of Florida, and the All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
The goals of the Musculoskeletal fellowship are to provide a comprehensive educational, clinical, surgical and academic training opportunity in musculoskeletal oncology and to stimulate our trainees to subsequently provide exemplary clinical care and contribute to future improvements in the field of oncology. The fellow participates in the clinics, weekly tumor board, conferences and seminars, including a Musculoskeletal Oncology Surgery Course and weekly orthopaedic surgery grand rounds conducted by the University of South Florida. The fellow is allotted dedicated research time and opportunities to present at national level conferences.
