Fellows participate in several clinical research projects during the year and are expected to present their results at a national meeting. To facilitate the production of academic videos, fellows are provided with access to professional-quality video recording and editing equipment, and are formally trained in its use. Numerous opportunities to write review articles and book chapters are available. Fellows present in both General Surgery and Laparoscopic Surgery Grand Rounds, and play an active role in the education of Mount Sinai residents and medical students.
