The Endourology and Minimally Invasive Fellowship Programs at the Cleveland Clinic Glickman Urologic and Kidney Institute offers two distinct fellowship streams. Candidates may apply for one or both programs:
1) Advanced Laparoscopy & Robotics with an emphasis on laparoscopic and robotic oncologic and reconstructive procedures. The Program Director for this fellowship is Dr. Jihad Kaouk. For more information regarding the Lap/Robotics fellowship, please contact Dr Kaouk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Description of Program
This is a two-year fellowship program involving both research and intensive clinical experience in laparoscopic and endourologic problems from the adrenal gland to the prostate. In addition to this clinical experience, time is available and encouraged for both clinical and laboratory research studies. The candidate who is accepted into this program will also have clinical volume of personal general urology patients as part of his/her appointment at the Cleveland Clinic at the Assistant Clinical Staff level.
Bench space and animal lab facilities are available, and a Ph.D. to supervise research is available. This is both encouraged and expected during this time.

2) Advanced Endourology and Stone Disease which has an emphasis on endourology with some exposure to laparoscopic and robotic reconstructive procedures. The Program Directors for this fellowship are Drs. Manoj Monga and Sri Sivalingam. We invite all US and Canadian graduates to apply. For more information regarding the Endourology/Stones fellowship, please contact Dr. Sivalingam at email@example.com.
Description of Program
This is a two-year fellowship program in advanced Endourology and stone disease, with some training in robotic upper tract reconstruction. This fellowship is geared to train the next generation of leaders in academic stone disease. We currently have one of the busiest PCNL programs in the United States with approximately 400 PCNL cases per year, 300 ureteroscopy cases and 300 shock wave lithotripsy cases. The fellows will become proficient in obtaining their own percutaneous renal access with both antegrade access and endoscopic guided access techniques.
There will be a strong emphasis on research with opportunities for both clinical and basic science projects. We currently have a database of 19000 patients with stones and have database and statistical support for analyses. Additionally, bench lab and animal lab facilities are available to facilitate basic science, translational or engineering projects and medical device testing. We also have a full-time PhD scientist dedicated to stone research.
