Non-ACGME Fellowships

Fellows in trainingThe Department of Surgery offers the following non-ACGME fellowship programs:

Advanced GI/MIS

The Advanced GI/MIS Fellowship program has been active at Oregon Health & Science University since 1998 as a fellowship in advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and has graduated more than 20 fellows, half of whom are currently in academic practice. Our fellowship experience currently focuses on advanced GI/MIS and open surgery for complex problems in UGI and HPB surgery. Application to the fellowship is available to any candidate who has completed an ACGME-accredited general surgery residency program. Candidates completing a general surgical residency must be eligible to take the Qualifying Exam of the American Board of Surgery, and provide letters of recommendation regarding their performance and good standing in their residency program. Applications to the fellowship program are only accepted through The Fellowship Council website.

Hepato-pancreatico-biliary (HPB)

The OHSU hepato-pancreatico-biliary (HPB) fellowship program is designed to draw from the multidisciplinary strengths of faculty members in abdominal organ transplant/hepato-pancreatico-biliary surgery, surgical oncology, and general surgery. The fellowship is aimed to complete the specialty training of well-trained general surgeons. The program will be two years in duration with one year focusing on clinical, basic and translational research, organ procurement and liver transplantation, the other year would focus on hepato-pancreatico-biliary surgery. Graduates will be expected to finish the program with substantial technical expertise in liver resection, complex biliary reconstruction, pancreas resection, liver transplantation, organ procurement, and minimally invasive liver and pancreatic surgery and techniques of liver tumor ablation. Ultimately the program is designed to produce superb technical surgeons with a thorough understanding of the clinical and translational aspects of HPB disease and who will be poised to provide leadership and mentoring in the advancement of HPB surgery in coming years in and outside the United States.
