Pediatric GI/Hepatology/Nutrition Fellowship

Goals and Objectives

The goal of our program is to provide a complete clinical experience in all areas of pediatric gastroenterology that will provide the resident fellow with the skills on which to build a career in patient care, research and teaching. The resident fellow will become proficient in all of the procedures that are employed in the evaluation and management of the patient with dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract, liver or pancreas. The resident fellow will also develop experience in nutritional assessment and in the design of enteral and parenteral nutritional rehabilitation options during the fellowship program. Time will be allotted during all three years of the training program for the development of clinical, translational or bench research skills. Finally, the resident fellow will participate in the preparation and presentation of clinical observations and data generated by well-designed research protocols. The resident fellow will be an active participant in the generation of manuscripts for publication.
