Fellows have to be certified Gastroenterologists or Surgeons who want to increase their skills on advanced EUS, ERCP (including cholangioscopy and pancreatoscopy), advanced endoscopy, management of pancreatic diseases or management of inflammatory bowel disease. Duration of fellowship ranges from one to twelve months according to the fellow’s availability.

Gastroenterologists and Surgeons in training can also apply for fellowship in our Department.

Those fellows staying for at least 6 months will also have the opportunity to develop a research project or to participate in some of the projects of the group. This will allow them to be a co-author in abstracts, as well as in original and review papers.
