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 primarily at University of Colorado Hospital, with call responsibilies at Denver Health Medical Center and the Denver VAMC. The nature of the training provided by this program will expose the trainee to seriously ill patients with a variety of disease processes. 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.
