Advanced Ostomy Education Program  

Advanced Ostomy Management is an innovative, on-line education program which provides the health care professional the flexibility to learn at their own pace on their own time. The curriculum is developed by a faculty of health care professionals experienced in caring for people with ostomies.

Topics include:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary system
  • Diseases and conditions related to ostomy formation
  • Current surgical procedures related to ostomy development
  • Assessment and care of the normal and abnormal stoma and peristomal skin
  • Ostomy product selection and application
  • Nutritional and pharmaceutical considerations 
  • Caring for the psychological and social aspects of living with an ostomy 
  • Ostomy care as part of chronic health and self-managed care

A one week clinical residency conducted at Mount Sinai Hospital provides additional learning opportunity for enhanced knowledge and skills in advanced ostomy care.

Successful graduates will receive a Certificate of Completion in Advanced Ostomy Management.
