The Advanced Endoscopy training program participates in the annual Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Matching Program sponsored by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE).

Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC) is an academic, NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center within the Temple University Health System in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Members of the Gastroenterology Section at FCCC see patients with a wide range of complex disorders, both neoplastic and non-neoplastic, and are regionally and nationally recognized for their clinical and academic activities. In 2007, the group established an Advanced Endoscopy (AE) training program (aka, “4th year”) which offers training in a breadth of endoscopic modalities, including ERCP (e.g., normal & surgically-altered anatomy, complex malignant biliary obstruction cases, etc.), endoscopic ultrasound, therapeutic interventions for Barrett's esophagus (endoscopic resection,  radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation), management of anastomotic leaks, enteral stenting, device-assisted deep enteroscopy and complex polypectomy, amongst others. As with all AE training programs in the United States, the FCCC AE program is not ACGME-accredited.
