Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship

The Colon and Rectal Surgery Division in the Department of Surgery at NewYork Presbyterian - Weill Cornell Medical Center is an ACMGE-accredited program and accepts two candidates per year at the PGY-6 level. We accept completed applications through ERAS only by August 15, 2016. Our only interview date is Saturday, September 10, 2016.

Our program encompasses the clinical, educational, and research aspects of the full range of diseases related to the large and small intestine. The service focuses on patients with colon and rectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's diseases, and complex anorectal problems. Sphincter-sparing methods for treating rectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease are emphasized. Unique aspects of our services are the laparoscopic techniques of treating colon and rectal disease, stoma therapy, teaching endorectal ultrasound, management of pelvis floor disorders and discussion of therapeutic colonoscopy.

Our fellows will be trained in the clinical aspects of colon and rectal surgery and will also be expected to author two scientific papers and speak at one national meeting during the residency year. Additional emphasis will be placed on the set up and management of a colon and rectal office practice, and in the delivering of high quality patient care.

The surgeons of the Weill Cornell colorectal program are involved in a variety of academic pursuits In the last year a number of book chapters, editorials, review articles and paper discussions regarding a variety of colorectal surgery topics have been published. Many of the recent publications concern minimally invasive colorectal surgery.
