Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship

Contact: David Monson, MD - dmonson@emory.edu

The Orthopaedic Oncology Fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine allows for one fellow per year. David Monson, MD is the Program Director with Shervin Oskouei, MD and Nickolas Reimer, MD as additional program faculty.

The educational goals of the Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship are to expose the fellow to a diverse experience of musculoskeletal neoplasia clinically and operatively. The goal is to create an academic orthopaedic oncologist.

This fellowship experience promises surgical exposure to all aspects of musculoskeletal neoplasia and bone disorders including skeletal sarcomas, soft tissue sarcomas, benign soft tissue tumors, benign bone tumors, metastatic disease to the bone and soft tissues, and metabolic bone disease. Traditionally all sites of the body are operated upon. These include the sites of the axial skeleton and appendicular skeleton. They also involve the retroperitoneum and extra compartmental areas of the axilla, groin and popliteal fossa. Surgeries also include the chest wall and abdominal wall.

Additional responsibilities include seeing patients in the outpatient setting as well as rounding on inpatients. The fellow will also be expected to participate in research including clinical and pre-clinical studies as well as basic science research. A minimum of one research paper is expected.
