Endocrine Surgery Fellowship

Our facility performs more than 400 endocrine operations per year.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Endocrine Surgery Fellowship is fully accredited by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES).

Our one-year program is designed to provide fellows expertise in the four cornerstones of the fellowship: outpatient/inpatient care, operative care, research and teaching.

We accept one fellow per year.


Outpatient Care

With outpatient care the fellow will develop expertise in surgeon-directed ultrasound evaluation of thyroid, lymphatic and parathyroid disease, same day US-guided FNA with immediate cytopathology and laryngoscopy, pre- and post-op.

Operative Care

With operative care, the fellow will develop expertise in the day surgery management of thyroid and parathyroid disease, routine central neck LN dissections with as indicated lateral neck LN dissections for thyroid cancer, extensive experience with intraoperative RLN monitoring, minimally invasive parathyroid surgery with intraoperative PTH, retroperitoneoscopic or laparoscopic adrenalectomy and management of familial islet cell tumors of the pancreas.


With research, the fellow will complete at least one major and one minor research project for abstract submission to a major surgical meeting and anticipated publication.


As junior staff, the fellow will be responsible for the clinical instruction of general surgery residents and medical students.
