The Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery offers ACGME-accredited training in colon and rectal surgery.
Our fellowship program is one year in duration and is based at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, supplemented by opportunities to operate at Buffalo General Medical Center, Sisters of Charity Hospital, Kenmore Mercy Hospital and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo.
During the year, the fellow is exposed to and expected to become proficient at office practice, outpatient procedures, inpatient anorectal surgery, major colonic surgery, laparoscopic colon surgery, robotic colon surgery, diagnostic and therapeutic colon and rectal surgery, and stomal care.
Successful completion of this year qualifies the fellow to take the certifying examination offered by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
The program accepts one fellow per year, and participates with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Prospective fellows are usually invited for an interview in August or September of the preceding year.
Applicants must have completed full general surgical training in a recognized training program (ACGME) and be eligible for the qualifying examination of the American Board of Surgery.
