Colorectal Fellowship

Our Division of Pediatric Colorectal & Pelvic Reconstruction at Children’s National Hospital has developed the Pediatric Colorectal Surgery Fellowship, which is 1-2 years in duration. During the second year, the fellow will pursue additional research.


Eligible candidates should have completed at least two years of general surgery training at an ACGME-approved (or equivalent) general surgical residency.

International applicants must have completed their pediatric surgery training and have all 3 levels of USMLE and the ability to secure a District of Columbia training license. According to Children’s Hospital policy, foreign medical graduates are expected to have a J1 visa. Exceptions to this requirement must be approved by the Designated Institutional Official, the Program Director and the Senior Vice President of Human Resources in advance of the letter of offer.

How to Apply

Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation from pediatric surgeons with whom they have worked with via email or mail to:
