The Swedish Digestive Health Institute (SDHI) provides patients comprehensive care that enhances, restores and maintains their digestive health.
That care begins with high-quality, on-the-job education. Your support ensures that our patients receive exceptional, research-based care from physicians and nurses who have trained alongside the very best in digestive medicine.
In this one-year fellowship, our thoracic surgery fellows receive well-rounded training to treat patients with both benign and cancerous conditions of the lungs, esophagus and chest. Our thoracic surgeons instill in fellows the highest standards of patient care as well as the value of research with a focus on minimally invasive surgical techniques. With your help, we can continue to recruit and retain the physicians who will become the next leaders in thoracic surgery.
Patients undergo 150 major abdominal surgeries at SDHI and visit our clinic more than 3,000 times annually—which means our colorectal surgery fellows can scrub in for a wide range of cases during this year-long program. Your support means that this new generation of surgeons is mentored by our expert colorectal surgeons, ensuring that patients will always receive exceptional care.
This one-year fellowship gives our nurses the hands-on experience and knowledge they need to provide compassionate care across many areas of digestive health. Whether patients need an organ transplant, cancer treatment or surgery, your support ensures that they will receive the care they need from nurse fellows who understand the patient experience. As one of only two programs for digestive health ARNPs nationwide, this fellowship benefits patients across the country.
