The field of surgery is constantly changing, acquiring new technologies, and applying these technologies to new diseases. Minimally invasive surgery, i.e. laparoscopy, has been in use since the 1980's. Its implementation and growth have exploded in the last 30 years. General surgery training programs have changed their curriculum and requirements to keep up with this change. But is it enough? Minimally invasive surgeries are being applied to more advanced, complex cases, such as in the field of surgical oncology. The portion of residents seeking post-graduate surgical oncology training is rising. However, the number of colon resections done minimally invasively have been stagnant or slow to rise, despite data showing equivalent cancer outcomes and improved patient comfort. The reason for this trend is nuclear. With surgical oncology fellowship on the verge of being an ACGME accredited fellowship, this survey hopes to understand if learning advanced minimally invasive techniques is a reason for residents to pursue surgical oncology fellowship training and if the programs are adequately training advanced minimally invasive oncologic surgeries.
