Description

The Cleveland Clinic Sanford R. Weiss, MD Center for Hereditary Colorectal Neoplasia and the Department of Colorectal Surgery at Cleveland Clinic are seeking candidates for an Advanced Training Fellowship focusing on all aspects of hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes.  The James Church, MD, and Sheetz Family Endowed Clinical Fellowship in Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Syndromes will practice at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus Hospital.  The ideal candidate will be fellowship trained in Colorectal Surgery and board certified/eligible.  An active research interest in hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes is encouraged and will be supported.  Both office and nursing support will be provided to facilitate the physician’s practice.

This is the first and only fellowship of its kind in the world.  The 12-month advanced training provides a tremendous opportunity to focus specifically on the breadth and depth of hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes.  This includes a comprehensive curriculum of the underlying genetics and etiologies, experience with diagnosis and evaluation, decision-making, and the endoscopic and surgical management of the syndromes.  Technical aspects of the fellowship include advanced minimally invasive procedures for colectomy and proctocolectomy with ileal-pouch anal anastomosis, and advanced endoscopic techniques including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), and combined endoscopic-laparoscopic surgery.  In addition, the fellow will gain experience with the medical and surgical management of desmoid disease. 


The training will consist of 3 four-month segments, being paired up with colorectal surgeons and gastroenterologists in the Weiss Center in the Digestive Disease and Surgery Institute in a mentorship model.  Trainees will also have adjunctive experience with colleagues in Urology, Gynecology, General Surgery, Genetic Counseling, and Pathology as relevant to hereditary colorectal cancer syndrome patients, as a true multidisciplinary experience.

Over the course of the year, advanced trainees will participate in academic activities in Weiss Center and the

Department of Colorectal Surgery Department to include multidisciplinary hereditary case conferences and tumor board conferences.  They will participate in dedicated hereditary syndrome outpatient clinics, research conferences, journal clubs, and meetings.  He/she will help lead and instruct fellow trainees ranging from medical students to fellows in Colorectal Surgery.  In addition, he/she will have the opportunity to participate in all other academic conferences in the Department of Colorectal Surgery.  The advanced trainee will also have access to databases, research and administrative support personnel, and will be expected to complete at least two projects that will be submitted for presentation and publication.

Weiss, MD Center for Hereditary Colorectal Neoplasia was established as a multidisciplinary team in 2008 through the generous donation of Dr. Sanford Weiss.  It is housed in the Department of Colorectal Surgery and the Digestive Disease and Surgery Institute at Cleveland Clinic.  Under the current leadership of Dr. David Liska, the mission of the Weiss Center is to prevent death from colorectal cancer or cancer of other organs involved in hereditary syndromes by maintaining excellent patient care, effective education, and clinically relevant research.  The multidisciplinary team includes colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, genetic counselors, pathologists, scientists, urologists, general surgeons, gynecologists, dermatologists, and nurses.  The Weiss Center Team provides more than 1,000 patient visits and 1,000 procedures annually.  Additionally, the Weiss Center maintains
