Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition offers a three-year ACGME accredited Fellowship Program with training to allow for a wide breadth of knowledge in the basic and fundamental disciplines of embryology, physiology, pharmacology, pathology, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, and genetics in relation to the gastrointestinal tract, hepatobiliary system, pancreas, and nutrition.  Our program emphasizes competence in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of preterm and term newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with acute and chronic gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, and nutritional disorders.

Upon completion of the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Program, fellows are eligible for board certification in Pediatric Gastroenterology.  Please contact us if you have further questions about our training program.

Scholarly Activity

Scholarly activity is an important part of the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship program.  The dedicated faculty members in our Section support the scholastic endeavors of our fellows through active participation and oversight of their research and publication.   As part of our program, fellows are ensured protected time to pursue their research interests as related to the requirements set forth by the ACGME. 

Furthermore, we support participation in the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) and allow fellows to attend annual NASPGHAN conferences for fellows in all three years of our program.  Second-year and third-year fellows may also attend the NASPGHAN Annual Meeting to present their research.

Conferences

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Program emphasizes scholarly activity and lifelong learning through our didactic conferences presented monthly within the Section.  Didactic conferences include: Journal Club, Chapter Review, and Fellows Case Conference.  We also conduct combined didactic conferences such as Pediatric Gastroenterology/Surgery Conference, Pediatric Gastroenterology/Pathology Conference, and Pediatric Gastroenterology/Radiology Conference, where fellows interact with the faculty and fellows of other Sections within The Children’s Hospital.
