The mission of the American Head and Neck Society (AHNS) is to advance the education, research and quality of care for the head and neck oncology patient. The AHNS is committed to developing tomorrow’s leaders in head and neck oncology. Currently with limited formal training opportunities for fellows in advanced technologies, including robotic surgery, the AHNS is committed to partnering with industry to provide future head and neck surgeons a pathway for advanced training in surgery, including transoral robotic surgery (TORS). As such, the AHNS has joined with industry to offer AHNS fellows a formal advanced training opportunity in TORS.
To be eligible to participate in the AHNS TORS Training Curriculum for Fellows during the 2020-2021 academic year, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Current fellow in an AHNS Advanced Training Council (ATC) accredited program
- Letter of commitment/agreement from AHNS Fellowship Program Director (AHNS will email an online form to Program Director)
- Submit a curriculum vitae.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come basis. The didactic on-demand course must be completed prior to hands-on training. Please submit your application to participate through the form below.
Certificate of Completion
Participants who complete the AHNS TORS Curriculum will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion.
All participants will be expected to maintain a TORS case log during fellowship through T-Res. However, only participants able to document a minimum of 10 TORS procedures completed as assistant and 10 TORS procedures completed as surgeon will be eligible for the certificate.
