The Division of GI Tumor and Endocrine Surgery (GITES) is now accepting applications for a one-year fellowship training offered to fully-trained BC/BE surgeons who desire further expertise in Robotic foregut/bariatric/abdominal wall reconstruction surgery. This grant is generously provided by Intuitive Foundation towards training the next generation of surgeons on DaVinci platform. The fellow will be exposed to both Robotic and laparoscopic platform. This will provide the fellow the opportunity to become well-trained in the field of MIS surgery.
The program also offers a very unique opportunity to learn the surgical techniques for Minimal invasive foregut reconstructive procedures performed in conjunction with cardiothoracic team (both robotic and laparoscopic). The program has 4 dedicated faculty and a research lab. The fellow is expected to have a wide exposure to foregut, reconstructive abdominal wall and bariatric surgery procedures. The fellow is expected to log approximately 250 to 300 cases by the end of the fellowship. There are department-wide and service-specific conferences that enhance both clinical and research activities. There is a weekly departmental Grand Rounds. The Division of GITES also has regular case conference, research conference, and monthly M&M meetings. Fellows have access to all conferences within the University. Research interests will be discussed with the fellow prior to the beginning of the fellowship with the hope that the fellow will be prepared to begin their research project soon after they start the program. It is expected that the fellow will complete at least one research project and submit it for publication during the program. Please see the attached links for further information regarding this fellowship and achievements.
