Therapeutic Endoscopy Fellowship Program

Program Description

This program represents a one-year funded clinical fellowship for training in advanced therapeutic endoscopy. It is designed for recent gastroenterology fellow graduates who wish to become proficient in ERCP, EUS and other new modalities not covered in detail in standard training programs. Training encompasses 12 months of clinical duty including endoscopic procedures, outpatient clinics, and other duties encompassed in the clinical application of these techniques. Current plans and resources are for one fellow per year. Pre-requisite for admission includes completion of an accredited Gastroenterology Fellowship program.

Facilities and Resources

Fellows in this program will see patients at the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) only. Night time and weekend call coverage may include coverage of patients from Denver Health Medical Center and the Denver VA Medical Center, but these patients would only be seen and treated after transfer to UCH. The nature of the training provided by this program will expose the trainee to many complex and critically ill patients with a variety of diseases. All of our fellows are encouraged to be involved in ongoing research activities as well as to develop independent research projects.

General Goals and Objectives

The purpose of this training program is to train accomplished gastroenterologists to perform therapeutic endoscopic procedures. To that end, the major goals are, a) to develop a detailed knowledge of the risks, indications, and contraindications of invasive procedures, b) to gain experience in the performance and management of patients undergoing these procedures, c) to perform with supervision, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound, and ultrasound directed biopsies, endoscopic mucosal resection, luminal stenting and other advanced procedures, and d) to develop skills in clinical research associated with these procedures.
