This advanced endoscopy fellowship is designed for an already trained Gastroenterology Resident who would like to pursue a career in EUS/ERCP. The advanced fellow will get exposure to both advanced GI luminal pathology and refine their luminal skills and acquire new skills to address luminal and pancreaticobiliary disease. The focus of the fellowship involves both cognitive and technical aspects of the care for patients requiring advanced diagnostics/therapeutics.This will be achieved via exposure to patient care in the Endoscopy Unit, as well as out-patient longitudinal clinics. EUS fellows will also get exposure to Cytopathology.

The fellowship is divided into pursuing both clinical and academic goals. Clinical activities include forward view endoscopy (EGD, Colonoscopy, Push Enteroscopy, luminal dilation, luminal stenting). The EUS fellowship will include diagnostic EUS along with some therapeutics. ERCP skills are acquired at Victoria Hospital. There will be exposure to complex colonic EMR and hands on experience depending on individual aptitude. Academic goals include participation in research and educational activities of the division.

Applicants are required to have salary support commensurate with level of training (PGY 6-8) prior to the fellowship year.

All suitable applicants are strongly encouraged to do an elective in our institute during their GI fellowship.
