This is a one-year Fellowship. The mission of the research and clinical fellowship is to produce leaders in the field of advanced gastrointestinal (GI) minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and bariatric surgery. Our graduates possess exceptional skill, a defined knowledge base and teaching ability that allow them to contribute to excellent patient outcomes and further our understanding of GI and metabolic diseases thru a dedicated year of research. This fellowship will be 60% research and 40% clinical, working at both Cedars Sinai Marina Del Rey and Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
This program’s emphasis is on research and will require the fellow to develop clinical research projects. Through mentored meetings, the fellow will have an opportunity for feedback on projects from experienced faculty. They will also be required to attend and actively participate in our weekly research meetings that focus on general surgery, foregut surgery, gastric cancer, bariatric surgery, and outcome research. The clinical portion of the fellowship will allow for experience in laparoscopic/robotic general, foregut and bariatric surgery procedures.
These include primary and revisional cases. The goal of this program is to graduate a surgeon with an understanding of how to perform advanced minimally invasive general/foregut/bariatric surgery. At the conclusion of the year, fellows will receive a certificate of completion from Cedars Sinai. They will also be able to obtain their Robotic Surgery Certificate.
