2016 Fellows Institute will be held November 14-16 in Houston, Texas at Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation, and Education (MITIE)

SSO's sixth annual Fellows Institute, cosponsored by the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (AHPBA) and the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrs), will take place November 14-16 in Houston, Texas. This important event consists of both didactic sessions and a hands-on laboratory component. There will also be evening social events.

The Fellows Institute again includes three specialty-specific tracks. Here is an overview:

Breast oncology: Led by Susan K. Boolbol, MD, and Barbara L. Smith, MD, PhD, this track's topics will include ultrasound & biopsy, live model scanning, stereotactic, oncoplastic techniques and other innovative techniques.

HPB: Under the direction of D. Rohan Jeyarajah, MD, this session covers surgery on the liver and pancreas, focusing in tumors and minimally invasive techniques.

Surgical oncology: Chandrajit P. Raut, MD and Michael I. D'Angelica, MD, oversee this track that includes case-based technical didactics and practical hands-on laboratory skills covering open and minimally invasive colorectal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, and adrenal surgery (including robotic surgery), liver ultrasound, isolated limb perfusion and infusion for regional melanoma, sarcoma surgery, and cytoreductive surgery with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy for peritoneal malignancies.
