As a free-standing cancer center, fellows do not have to rotate on services that provide general surgery or trauma care. Every experience is focused 100% on patients with cancer. There are a limited number of junior general surgery residents from the University at Buffalo at RP, but their service assignments are made specifically so that they will not compete with or detract from the surgical oncology fellowship training. University at Buffalo medical students also rotate on the surgical oncology services at RP.
