Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Program

The Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Program is geared towards the academic endoscopist. It is unique because:

  • It focuses on both technical and cognitive skill acquisition and endoscopic research training and experience.
  • It provides comprehensive training in all advanced endoscopic procedures, including cutting-edge technologies not available to most institutions.
  • It includes learning how to teach endoscopy.

Fellows are encouraged to do research related to endoscopy and receive assistance in preparing grant applications for funding research.

The division has the largest experience in confocal endomicroscopy and carbon dioxide cryotherapy in the United States.
