Our Division of Pediatric Colorectal & Pelvic Reconstruction at Children’s National Hospital has developed the Pediatric Colorectal Surgery Fellowship, which is 1-2 years in duration. During the second year, the fellow will pursue additional research.
The fellow's experience will be in advanced colorectal and pelvic reconstruction surgery and collaborating specialties including colorectal surgery, GI Motility, urology and gynecology. The fellow will have dedicated research time, ongoing participation in data collection and QI projects focused on colorectal and pelvic reconstruction surgery in pediatric patients as well as the study of optimal curriculum development for pediatric surgical education in the area of colorectal surgery. In addition, the fellow is expected to submit at least two papers for publication.
