The Cleveland Clinic Department of Colorectal Surgery is seeking candidates for an Advanced Training focusing in further developing Minimally Invasive and Re-Operative surgical skills to join the Colorectal Surgery team.

An active research interest in minimally invasive and re-operative surgery is also encouraged and will be supported. Both office and nursing support will be provided to facilitate the physicians practice.

This 12-month advanced training provides a tremendous opportunity to focus specifically on advanced minimally invasive procedures including laparoscopic, transanal, and robotic procedures as junior staff. In addition, advanced trainees will focus on advanced endoscopic techniques including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), and combined endoscopic-laparoscopic surgery. This advanced training will also cover the latest multi-modality techniques in re-operative abdominal and pelvic surgery, such as pelvic exenterations and intra-operative radiation therapy for recurrent rectal cancer, cytoreductive surgery for peritoneal metastatic disease, and re-do pelvic pouch procedures for inflammatory bowel disease and hereditary syndromes. The training will consist of six two-month segments, being paired up with attending surgeons on the Colorectal Surgery service in a mentorship model. Trainees will also have the opportunity to work with uro-gynecology, urology, gyn-oncology, and radiation oncology to round out their multi-disciplinary experience.

Over the course of the year, advanced trainees will participate in all academic activities in the Colorectal Surgery Department, to include multi-disciplinary IBD and oncology conferences, outpatient clinics, rounds, staff lectures, research conferences, journal clubs and meetings. They will help lead and instruct fellow trainees ranging from medical students to fellows in Colorectal Surgery. The advanced trainee will also have access to databases, research and administrative support personnel, and will be expected to complete at least one project that will be submitted for presentation and publication.
