Stanford University School of Medicine has established a new one-year Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Fellowship under the direction of NANETS Board Member, Dr. Pamela Kunz. The increasing incidence and prevalence of NET disease combined with the complex multidisciplinary care required by NET patients, Stanford University developed this focused fellowship program to fill a need.

The goals of the fellowship are:

  • To acquire a thorough knowledge base of basic and applied medical sciences that pertain to NETs and to be able to apply this knowledge when caring for NET patients from diagnosis to developing tailored treatment plans.
  • To gain experience in the clinical care of NET patients and an understanding of when to involve specialty consultants.
  • To understand the emerging field of survivorship as it applies to NETs as a model for chronic cancer.
  • To gain skills in clinical research related to NET patients including clinical trial design and conduct, management of a NET Database, and apply these skills to an independent clinical or translational research project.

Applicants for the NET fellowship must have completed one of the following:

  • ACGME-certified fellowship in Hematology and/or Oncology
  • ACGME-certified residency or fellowship in Nuclear Medicine
  • ACGME-certified residency in Surgery

Timeline:

  • Applicants should email the Program Director and Coordinator with CV and a personal statement describing your interest in NETs by January 31, 2018.
  • Interviews will be conducted by the Program Director and NET Program faculty in February 2018.
  • Applicants will be notified of a decision via email by March 16, 2018.
