Minimally invasive fellowship training has seen phenomenal growth, with 94 organized fellowship programs in North America. Training experience is varied across programs owing to the differences in surgical practices. Many programs are often weighted to a specific field of advanced laparoscopic surgery, which can limit a fellow's clinical experience. Minimally Invasive Surgeons of Texas (MIST) is a combined organization of four independent private practice and academic MIS fellowships brought together for the common goal of improved fellowship training.
