Gastroenterology Fellowship

Faculty & Staff

All staff gastroenterologists supervise subspecialty fellows in caring for patients in the areas of inpatient, outpatient and procedural services. The number of weeks on service ranges from four to 20 per year. The faculty gastroenterologists supervise the fellows directly in each of these areas.  Staff members are considered to be on the teaching service during the weeks they are on the inpatient service and when supervising fellows in their continuity clinic. The hours per week are an estimate of the total for the year divided over 52 weeks. All staff members attend the weekly conferences and give lectures.
