Endoscopy Rotation

Throughout the three-year tenure of the fellowship, fellows gain proficiency in a wide array of endoscopic procedures. During the first year, fellows will supervised in the performance of basic endoscopic procedures, including upper and lower endoscopy, polypectomy, tube feeding placement (PEG), and endoscopic management of upper and lower GI bleeding. In the second and third years of training, fellows maintain a weekly endoscopy session where they perform procedures generated from their continuity clinic. In addition, during their senior year of fellowship, fellows have the opportunity to gain exposure to such sophisticated procedures as ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and capsule endoscopy.
