Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our one-year fellowship covers all aspects of colon and rectal surgery. Since we are based at The Mount Sinai Hospital, a 1,171-bed tertiary facility in New York City, we experience high surgical volume. As a fellow, you perform a variety of procedures using different techniques—from traditional open surgery to minimally invasive approaches. All our graduate fellows have advanced to prestigious appointments and private practices across the country.


Fellows spend the entire year working with full-time colon and rectal surgeons at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Our large case volume guarantees exposure to the full spectrum of colon and rectal disorders, and you perform a wide range of procedures.

In addition to the clinical experience, you participate in several clinical research projects during the year, and you will present your results at a national meeting. You also have numerous opportunities to write review articles and book chapters throughout the year. Fellows present in General Surgery Grand Rounds and play an active role in the education of our residents and medical students.

How to Apply

We fill all positions using the National Resident Match Program with the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
