Thoughts on an academic endoscopy career

Post written by Amitabh Chak, MD, MS, from the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

I want to thank Dr. G.S. Raju, VideoGIE Editor-in-Chief for asking me to do an article on an academic endoscopy career. It made me reflect back on 28 years that have gone by so quickly. Life as an academic endoscopist has never been boring. The field has been constantly evolving, and I have been lucky enough to be at the forefront of numerous innovations. I hope I captured some of that excitement in this article and interview. I would like to say to trainees who are trying to decide what they want to do when they grow up, “if you choose to pursue endoscopic teaching and research you will never regret your career choice.”
