Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship

With advanced training, you’ll become a board-certified, compassionate leader in the field of colon and rectal surgery.

With this one-year comprehensive, intensive ACGME-accredited Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship, you’ll be prepared for successful certification by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery.

Besides the clinical education and experience you need to be a successful colon and rectal surgeon, you’ll have support from our faculty to be a compassionate, lifelong learner who’ll be an asset to any healthcare system.

We accept one fellow each year. If you join our surgery fellowship program, you’ll:

  • Develop into a fully autonomous colon and rectal surgeon who’s ready to provide excellent, safe and compassionate care
  • Attain competence and confidence in the evaluation, operative treatment and non-operative management of patients with disorders of the colon, rectum and anus
  • Become a self-motivated, lifelong learner who’s ready to adapt to advancements in technology and treatments — always able to remain at the top of this evolving field
  • Develop as a professional who’ll be trusted for your medical expertise and regarded as a leader in the care of patients with colon and rectal disease
