Utah HealthCare Institute/St. Mark’s Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship

History

Salt Lake City's CRS program offers broad clinical training with exposure to a wide variety of colon and rectal diseases. In addition to anorectal and endoscopic training, the program offers laparoscopic, robotic and open approaches to complex surgical problems including oncology, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticular disease. The program also offers extensive exposure to diagnosis and management of pelvic floor disorders. Fellows will experience a collegial training environment, intimate teaching conferences, multidisciplinary tumor boards and IBD conferences. This training program is fortunate to be located in beautiful Salt Lake City, UT with ready access to numerous outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, mountain biking, mountain climbing and camping in the breathtaking intermountain west.
