The goal of the Endoscopy Research Fellowship program is to provide a unique and challenging experience for the fellow to:
- Perform meaningful, supervised research and engage in scholarly activities. The fellow will not participate in clinical patient care.
- Examine records from a population of endoscopy patients in the context of a high-volume service, both outpatient and inpatient.
- Learn a multidisciplinary team approach to medical research. Fellows are expected to shadow and observe the work of major providers in four main areas — gastroenterology, surgery, interventional radiology, and pathology — and serve as valued and important contributors to the team.
- Study, analyze, present, and publish on multiple aspects of endoscopy at Virginia Mason.
