The Training Council, initially established and governed by the councils of the Society of Head and Neck Surgeons and the American Society for Head and Neck Surgery, now operates under the auspices of The American Head and Neck Society. The AHNS Executive Council and the Training Council Committee Members oversee fellowship policies and programs
The fellowship period is one to two years, depending upon the program, with facilities for basic science research for one year in select programs. Training is focused on head and neck surgery with special emphasis on ablative surgery, along with reconstructive, skull base surgery, and understanding of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. A majority of the fellows who have completed training programs now practice head and neck surgery in an academic setting. Details of the application process and the list of the programs around the country are available on this website.
Doctors who have received a D.O. are not eligible to participate in the AHNS match. However, applicants with a D.O. can contact the fellowship programs after the match occurs to see if a position is available and if their qualifications are a fit for the program.
