A Message from the Program Director

Welcome to Prisma Health, Department of Surgery. Our goal is to prepare you to function as a qualified practitioner of colon and rectal surgery.

Your fellowship will encompass both didactic instruction in the basic and clinical sciences of colon and rectal surgical diseases and conditions, as well as education in procedural skills and operative techniques. When you graduate from our program you will have the fund of knowledge, technical skills, and confidence to use them in any colon and rectal surgery practice.
