The Myers Family Minority Student Summer Fellowship was founded by generous contributions from Drs. Eugene and Jeffrey Myers whose commitment to increasing diversity in the ranks of head and neck cancer surgeons is made manifest by this fellowship.
The Fellowship offers trainees from traditionally under-represented minority backgrounds the chance to work in a Department of Academic Excellence in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology that has an approved Fellowship Training Program from the Advanced Training Council of the AHNS. Awardees will be assigned to a clinical faculty mentor and will rotate on his or her clinical service. Summer fellows will also have the opportunity to perform basic, translational, clinical, or population based research under the guidance of a chosen/assigned research mentor.
