Elective rotations tailored to candidates’ interests are available during the one-year fellowship, and include focused clinical experiences in thoracic radiation oncology, imaging, pathology, and/or and interventional bronchoscopy. Participation in approved personal or ongoing departmental laboratory or clinical research projects is required.
