The development of formally recognized and accredited advanced training fellowships in oral and maxillofacial oncology and reconstructive surgery has had a profound effect on the scope of practice at various teaching centers in the United States. This pre-conference symposium will review some of the current and evolving lines of clinical and scientific endeavor in the field of head and neck surgery, highlight currently available fellowship programs, and provide interested clinicians with a forum for peer-reviewed presentations and the exchange of ideas.

Learning Objectives
  1. Demonstrate familiarity with the epigenetic mechanisms important in oral cancer development;
  2. Describe the modern techniques of microvascular free tissue transfer for the reconstruction of large volume defects resulting from head and neck cancer ablation;
  3. Describe novel therapeutic approaches to the management of benign and malignant salivary gland disorders;
  4. Explain the implications of head and neck oncologic and microvascular reconstructive surgery on board certification in the specialty of OMS;
  5. Describe the evolution and future of facial transplantation;
  6. Demonstrate familiarity with a tumor-board style discussion of pertinent case-based scenarios in maxillofacial oncology and reconstructive surgery.
  7. Discuss the impact that fellowship training in oral and maxillofacial oncologic and reconstructive surgery has had on the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery in North America; and
