ERCP Fellowships
ERCP Fellowship

This one-year Interventional Endoscopy and Therapeutic ERCP fellowship allows the fellow to gain extensive experience in ERCP-related procedures involving both the biliary and pancreatic ductal systems. Flexible endoscopy including EGD and colonoscopy is included in the fellowship. Fellows also gain experience in complex pancreatic and biliary tract surgery under the direction of the surgical faculty. Research related to the clinical activities is ongoing, and the fellow is expected to participate.

  The general surgery training at U of L is certainly second to none and will remain as such because of a relentless commitment to the pursuit of excellence in patient care and surgical education.
