Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship

The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is fortunate in having full-time faculty clinical, translational and basic science investigators with interests and expertise in several major areas of digestive disease. These areas include gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophageal motor disorders, gastrointestinal motility, functional gastrointestinal disorders, viral hepatitis, liver cancer, liver transplantation, acute and chronic liver disease, colon cancer, peptic ulcer disease, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, pancreaticobiliary disease, advanced endoscopy, clinical trials and outcomes research. Active clinical and/or basic science research efforts and renowned mentors exist in all of these areas.

The general fellowship program is designed to cover three years, although additional training in inflammatory bowel disease, outcomes research, interventional gastroenterology, esophageal disease, and transplant Hepatology are all available. In addition, multiple training tracks (T32) as well as the 3-year transplant hepatology track are available based on the interest of the fellow. The aim is to provide a broad range of experiences in both clinical and investigative gastroenterology and hepatology. Matriculating fellows are expected to be well prepared for future careers in either academic or practice settings. Four fellows are generally accepted each year in our GI program (1-2 general GI track, 1-2 T32 research track, 1 transplant Hepatology track). Greater than 75% of our fellows have gone into academic careers in the past 5-7 years of our training program, rivaling and surpassing many other top GI fellowship programs in the country.

The two-year Gastroenterology/Hepatology Fellowship is mandatory, and specialty fellowships are optional.

The specialty fellowships are:
