Bariatric Surgery Fellowship

Our Bariatric Surgery Fellowship Program is closing in 2019. We are no longer accepting applications. Thank you for your interest.

The Bariatric Surgery Fellowship Program in the Division of General Surgery within the Department of Surgery is a one-fellow one-year clinical fellowship in an academic setting. This fellowship prepares the trainee to competently and confidently perform laparoscopic bariatric surgery and all related care. There is ample opportunity to complete clinically based research and publication is encouraged. The fellow also gains an understanding of the process of starting a new bariatric program in an academic or non-academic venue. The ultimate goal is to have the graduate excel in practice in the field of bariatric surgery.
