The Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship program is a one-year clinical program affiliated with the Colon & Rectal Clinic of Orlando, a private practice, and Orlando Health, an 800-bed community-based teaching hospital and Central Florida’s only Level 1 Trauma Center. Through our affiliations with Orlando Health, the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, and the Florida State University College of Medicine, our fellows will have the opportunity to work closely with general surgery residents, medical students, and even undergraduates. Our non-accredited Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) fellowship is offered through the Fellowship Council. We are currently approved for two (2) fellows per year. Our MIS program is truly unique in that the clinical experience parallels that of the accredited fellows, allowing the full spectrum of colon and rectal surgery to be experienced throughout the year. Many of our MIS fellows go on to enroll in accredited fellowships or transition directly into practice after fellowship.
