During our three year program, you will participate in a scholarly activity that will prepare fellows for a career in academic gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition and will allow you to meet your requirements for certification in gastroenterology by the American Board of Pediatrics.

Each fellow is able to choose an area of interest for research and is closely supported by an experienced research mentor as well as the scholarship oversight committee that will meet on a regular basis.

All fellows will complete a final work product and have the opportunity to present their research at local and national meetings.

Scholarly Core Curriculum

Each fellow is required to participate in a scholarly core curriculum during their 3 years of training, which can include topics related to biostatistics, basic science techniques, research study design, methodology, evidence-based medicine, ethics, teaching skills, and scientific writing. You will be able to participate in courses and conferences to help guide you in obtaining these skills.

Some of the active areas of research in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition include celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease.

Scholarly Project

Each fellow will complete a research project during their 3 year fellowship training (e.g. clinical, basic, translational research, educational curriculum development, or health services, to name some of the possibilities).

During your second and third year of fellowship, you will be provided time to focus on research, with an emphasis on direct mentoring and support necessary for successful project completion upon graduation. A working manuscript is required to be sent to the American Board of Pediatrics upon completion of your fellowship to be eligible for your board exam.

Each fellow will have the opportunity to present their work at regional and national meetings of our professional societies.
