The issue of postresidency training in surgical oncology engenders much debate, particularly as it impacts on general surgery training. With the goal of enhancing instruction in surgical oncology in the future, a survey was conducted to assess the role of surgical oncology programs and educational activities within university-based surgery training programs. The results of the study demonstrate an increased emphasis on surgical oncology training over the past five years. The findings also indicate that education activity in surgical oncology in all departments of surgery has increased greatly, as demonstrated by an increased number of specific teaching rounds and conferences. The impact of this increased awareness on the future of surgical oncology training is discussed.
