Colorectal Surgery Fellowship

Colorectal Surgery Fellowship

This one-year ACGME-accredited program prepares physicians for certification by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery (ABCRS). Our program is enhanced through collaboration with Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center (DF/BWCC).

As a tertiary care referral center, we offer broad and significant program experience balanced with high case volume including:

  • Surgical treatment of colon, rectal and anal cancer.
  • Extensive experience in the surgical treatment of patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
  • Care and treatment of complex diverticular disease.
  • Training in colonoscopy and anorectal surgery.
  • Collaboration with physicians in the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.

In addition, the resident rotates one session per week (half day) in the outpatient clinic and approximately one session per week performing endoscopies. Pelvic floor experience occurs at Massachusetts General Hospital once a month. At the conclusion of the year, the resident will have had exposure to all colorectal disease problems and a rich operative experience in minimally invasive and open surgical techniques.
