Title: Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Endourological Fellowship

Categories: Fellowships

Location: Chicago, IL

Job Information:

The Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine Endourology Fellowship is a two-year program with clinical, operative and research components.

The clinical element will train fellows in endoscopic laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery for endourological conditions, in particular stone disease, kidney cancer, prostate cancer and structures of the ureter. In addition to ureteroscopic and percutaneous management of stone disease, a strong emphasis is placed on robotic prostatectomy, laparoscopic and robotic assisted partial nephrectomy, and robotic cystectomy.  The fellow will also participate in laparoscopic and robotic reconstructive cases, including pyeloplasty and ureteral reimplantation. A small component of the clinical experience will consist of office-based procedures in the urology clinic.

The fellow is required to participate in clinical research. The Department of Urology maintains a strong database of laparoscopic and endourology procedures to produce abstracts and manuscripts for international research meetings and high-impact journals. In collaboration with program directors and residents, the fellow is expected to produce approximately five clinical manuscripts per year.

The fellow works primarily with Dr. Robert B. Nadler, Professor of Urology and Director of Robotic, Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Urology. The fellow also supplements the surgical practice of Dr. Kent Perry, Associate Professor of Urology.

Previous fellows have gone on to successful careers in both academic and specialized private practice settings.
