Program Overview

Founded in 1993, the Mount Sinai Clinical Fellowship in Laparoscopic Surgery is one of the first formal training programs for laparoscopy established in the United States. We currently offer one-year positions to two highly qualified individuals per academic year (July 1 - June 30).

The program is based at The Mount Sinai Hospital, a 1,171 bed tertiary care center in the heart of New York City. Staffed by 1,800 physicians, the hospital serves as the primary academic facility for Icahn School of Medicine, internationally recognized for world-class teaching and research with over $142 million in NIH funding in 2002.

With the formation of the Division of Laparoscopic Surgery in 1992, Mount Sinai was one of the first medical schools in the U.S. to recognize the field as a distinct specialty within general surgery. Mount Sinai now boasts one of the nation’s most clinically active laparoscopic programs. This provides our laparoscopic fellows with an unparalleled exposure to a remarkable spectrum of minimally invasive procedures and techniques.
