Gastroenterology Fellowship


Education is a key aspect of the program. In addition to division, hospital, and specialty wide conferences, fellows are expected to perform self-directed reading of pertinent textbooks and journals, effectively search the medical literature, and critically evaluate the medical literature.

GI Division Conferences

The fellow will be directly involved with a variety of scholarly activities, including a structured set of GI teaching conferences that they will be responsible for participating in and leading. The conferences will include journal clubs, case-based seminars covering key GI clinical and basic science topics, pathology and radiology conferences. All division conferences are protected time for fellows.

Fellows will also regularly provide informal teaching for residents and students rotating on the GI service.

Summary of regularly scheduled teaching conferences:
       Radiology Rounds- monthly
       Pathology Rounds- monthly
       Journal Club- every other month
       Morbidity and Mortality- quarterly
       GI pathology review- one-on-one review of GI biopsies with pathologist, Dr. Puscasiu, every other week
