The Fellowship Council application for the Non-ACGME Advanced Colorectal and Thoracic Fellowship matching process is open, with the deadline to apply November 10, 2020. The fellowships for this matching cycle begin on August 1, 2021.
THORACIC SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS
These fellowships are comprehensive training programs in advanced non-cardiac thoracic surgery, intended for those who have graduated from or intend to complete an ACGME cardiothoracic residency. Foreign medical graduates who do not plan to practice in the United States are also eligible. It is not intended as an alternative path to thoracic credentialing, but rather as an enhancement for specialized training in minimally invasive and robotic techniques, multidisciplinary thoracic and foregut oncology, and benign and malignant foregut surgery.
COLORECTAL SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS
The colorectal fellowship programs are intended for trainees who have successfully completed or intend to complete a colorectal surgery residency program accredited by the ACGME. International medical graduates who have not completed a general surgery residency program accredited by the ACGME and are not certified by or eligible for certification by the American Board of Surgery may also be eligible for training in a Fellowship Council accredited program. Successful completion of a Fellowship Council accredited colorectal surgery fellowship DOES NOT, under any circumstances, qualify for eligibility for certification by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
The Fellowship Council Non-ACGME Advanced Colorectal and Thoracic Fellowship programs are listed on the Fellowship Council web site at https://www.fellowshipcouncil.org/directory-of-fellowships/?match=2.
