The UW Endourology and Minimally Invasive Surgery Section offers a one-year fellowship (Certificate of Advanced Clinical Training) focused on endourology/stones.  Fellows in our program will experience high case volumes, complex case mixes and a vast array of research opportunities. UW was recently awarded a U01 from the NIH to become one of four clinical centers forming the Urinary Stone Disease Research Network (USDRN).

The fellowship is focused on clinical endourology and kidney stones; in addition the fellow will participate in advanced laparoscopic/robotic surgery weekly.  The fellow will attend our Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Stone Clinic. Throughout the duration of training, the fellow will primarily be mentored by three Endourology Faculty: Program Director Jonathan Harper M.D., Mathew Sorensen M.D. and Robert Sweet M.D.

A variety of research opportunities are available.  Drs. Harper and Sorensen have an active collaboration with the UWApplied Physics Laboratory and Center for Industrial and Medical Ultrasound.  The fellow will have the opportunity to work with research faculty Michael Bailey PhD, Adam Maxwell PhD and others.  The group continues to investigate ways to improve ultrasound for the detection and treatment of kidney stones, such as ultrasonic propulsion and burst wave lithotripsy.  Additional opportunities for research lie within the Center for Research in Education and Simulation Technology, lead by Dr. Sweet.
