Overview
Fellowship in Endourology at the Kidney Stone Institute of Mount Sinai, New York, NY.

The fellowship is an intensive one year fellowship in all aspects of Endourology. The focus of training will be advanced endourological procedures, including endoscopic and percutaneous management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma, office ureteroscopy, endopyelotomy (retrograde and antegrade), as well as basic endourological procedures such as PCNL and ureteroscopy for stone disease.

The fellow will function as a junior level attending at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. The fellow’s time will be distributed between clinical work and clinical research during the fellowship. The fellow’s annual salary and benefits are commensurate with a Chief Resident/Fellow at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and allows for a comfortable living in New York City.

Research:
The fellow will play a leadership role as a member of our Endourology research team. The research team consists of full time research students, urology residents, international research fellows, medical students, and a full time research coordinator. The research has a broad base, but focuses on stone disease, clinical outcomes, testing and development of new technologies, and clinical investigation into markers for renal damage. The fellows have been very productive, publishing in peer reviewed journals, and presenting at national and international meetings.

Education:
The fellow will be expected to attend and participate in our active didactic program in the department of urology which includes Grand Rounds and clinical conferences. The fellow will also be responsible for teaching residents, medical students, and visiting doctors.
