We now offer two fellowship programs
Advanced GI Minimally Invasive Surgery/Bariatric Fellowship
The program is accredited by the fellowship Council as a MIS/Bariatric fellowship, due to the extensive experience in advanced MIS and bariatric surgery. This is largely a clinical fellowship which concentrates on laparoscopic bariatric and foregut surgery and upper GI endoscopy. It will provide expertise in bariatric surgery (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and revisional surgery), foregut surgery (paraesophageal hernia repair, Heller myotomy, and Nissen fundoplication, and revisional foregut surgery), and diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. This is one of the few fellowships that still performs a high volume of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
The program aims to prepare the fellow for expertise in the practice of laparoscopic bariatric and foregut surgery and flexible endoscopy. We set the bar to a high level, to train each resident to be an exceptional clinician. And our commitment to accomplishing that goal is unwavering.
Colon & Rectal Fellowship
Vanderbilt University Medical Center Colon & Rectal Surgery Fellowship is an ACGME accredited program that is now recruiting for a position to begin in August 2021. This is a 1 year program that will be spent at the University Medical Center and provides a broad education on Colon & Rectal Surgery. Candidates must be a US Citizen or permanent resident to qualify and must have completed an ACGME accredited general surgery training program.
Trainees will work in coordination with general surgery residents, nurse practitioners, and medical students. Vanderbilt has a long tradition of commitment to education and we are excited to add Colon & Rectal Surgery training to this.
