“This summer I spent two weeks in Portland, Oregon, with the Oregon Clinic foregut surgeons Drs. Steve DeMeester and Christy Dunst. This experience invigorated my enthusiasm to develop a complex esophageal practice and continue research in this area. At Case Western, I plan to perform endoscopic resections as part of staging for early-stage esophageal cancer patients.”

“This July I spent time at OHSU and obtained a limited Oregon license and privileges at the hospital so that I was able to participate in cases. Overall, it was a wonderful educational experience that increased my understanding of foregut disease and improved my surgical and endoscopic skills to identify dysplasia.”
