The Gastroenterology and Nutrition Service in the Department of Medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers a one-year Advanced Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Fellowship Training Program that combines an outstanding education and training experience in advanced gastrointestinal endoscopic training, with excellent clinical research opportunities.
The Gastroenterology Service provides inpatient and outpatient gastrointestinal consultation covering the full spectrum of benign and malignant gastrointestinal and hepatopancreaticobiliary disorders, as well as the full range of gastrointestinal procedures in our state-of-the-art GI Endoscopy Unit, located in our Surgical Day Hospital.
During the course of their training, our Advanced GI Endoscopy Fellows develop expertise in performing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), including such therapeutic EUS and ERCP interventions as EUS-guided fine needle aspiration/biopsy, celiac plexus neurolysis, drainage of peri-GI tract fluid collections and alternative endoscopic access to biliary tract, endoscopic sphincterotomy, ampullectomy, cholangiopancreatoscopy, and pancreaticobiliary stent insertion, as well as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, dilation, hemostasis, polypectomy, endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), radiofrequency ablation (RFA), laser therapy, small bowel enteroscopy, including video capsule endoscopy, enteral stent insertion, percutaneous gastrostomy jejunostomy tube placement, and percutaneous liver biopsy. We anticipate offering training in endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in the near future.
Our Advanced GI Endoscopy fellows also greatly benefit from the Gastroenterology Service’s strong and longstanding relationships with our outstanding colleagues in the Department of Surgery, GI Oncology Service, Department of Radiology, Interventional Radiology Service, Clinical Genetics Service, Department of Pathology, and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, including shared clinical care, participation in weekly multidisciplinary disease management team conferences, and collaborative research opportunities.
