Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Program

The Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship (AEF) at the Medical College of Wisconsin is a one-year program designed to equip fellows with the acumen and clinical skills to develop into experts in the care of patients with complex endoscopic and pancreaticobiliary problems. 

Program Overview

Over the course of the fellowship, the trainee will be exposed to most areas of advanced endoscopy with the exception of submucosal dissection and primary bariatric therapies. The trainee should expect to have extensive hands-on experience under the supervision of five faculty members. The trainee’s salary is supported by the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center (VAMC), and therefore, he/she will act as the supervising faculty for general GI endoscopy at the VAMC one and a half days per week.

Research

Research and discovery are important aspects of an academic advanced endoscopy training program. The trainee is expected to conduct his/her own research project(s), from IRB submission to publication, under the mentorship of the AEF faculty. Prior to the start of the fellowship, a faculty member will contact the trainee to gauge areas of interest and begin to formulate a research plan for the year. The faculty will make every effort to support research endeavors of interest to the trainee instead of imposing projects upon him/her. It is the expectation that the trainee will present his/her research at national meetings and ultimately, all completed work will be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Additionally, the fellow will gain experience enrolling patients in several ongoing multicenter clinical trials. Protected time will be provided for academic development. The trainee will have one half day per week of protected time to support academic pursuits.

Faculty

The trainee will work under the supervision of five faculty members in the section advanced endoscopy. Faculty members have a wide array of clinical and research expertise, affording the trainee a diverse group of mentors.
