Thoracoesophageal Research Fellowship

Thoracoesophageal Research Fellowship

The Digestive Disease Institute, in partnership with the Ryan Hill Research Foundation and the Sections of General Thoracic Surgery and Gastroenterology at Virginia Mason, offers a one-year advanced thoracoesophageal fellowship opportunity for extensive experience in clinical and endoscopic research focusing on upper gastrointestinal disease.

A non-profit foundation established in 1979 by the famed surgeon Lucius D. Hill, MD, the Ryan Hill Research Foundation is dedicated to basic science as well as endoscopic and surgical research of a broad spectrum of esophageal disorders. The fellowship provides the opportunity to:

  • Actively engage in research on digestive disease, both clinically and in the laboratory
  • Be funded to present at national meetings

Data on many of these patients is maintained in multiple ongoing prospective databases for the study of Barrett's esophagus, esophagectomy, esophagectomy quality of life and cost data, and paraesophageal hernia.
