Colorectal Fellowship

The fellowship is a 1-year non-accredited training experience in colorectal surgery. Upon completion of training a resident is expected to be competent in the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the colon, rectum and anus. While not a Royal College accredited program, the fellowship will follow the Objectives of Training from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  See the Royal College website for more information.

The fellowship will leverage local expertise to allow residents who have completed General Surgery residency to gain a focused clinical experience in the pathology and treatment of colorectal problems, including surgical management and colonoscopy.

The colorectal fellow is provided the opportunity to obtain excellent experience in operating and pre and postoperative management of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, and anorectal diseases. We perform high volumes of open and laparoscopic resections, trans-anal endoscopic excisions, and colonoscopy. Outpatient clinics provide an opportunity for learning workup and management of benign and malignant colorectal diseases. Fellows will rotate quarterly through the two clinical units allowing exposure to the breadth of clinical care in colorectal surgery. While both clinical units serve a broad practice, the University Hospital location allows exposure to the gastroenterology inpatient unit and the Victoria Hospital location allows exposure to the London Regional Cancer Program.

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate experience and training in General Surgery and be eligible for or have Certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Applicants must be eligible for licensure in the Province of Ontario.

Applications must include a current curriculum vitae including a description of previous academic experience as well as specialty training. Please also include three current reference letters. This application will remain open until November 4, 2022.
