Fellows attend a wide range of diverse didactic lectures that enhance their academic training experience. Several of the conferences are interdisciplinary, including collaborations with adult gastroenterology and hepatology, radiology, and pathology.
Department Conferences & Meetings
The Department of Pediatrics hosts a variety of conferences and meetings that enhance clinical and research training, meet ABP and ACGME requirements, and give our fellows an opportunity to interact with well-established clinicians and researchers, both internal and external to URMC.
Pediatric GI Clinical Conference
Faculty and fellows present didactic lectures and current clinical cases for discussion. Speakers from outside the medical center are invited to present on specialized topics such as transplant, motility, and hepatology.
Pediatric GI Radiology Conference
Fellows collaborate with pediatric radiologists to present in-depth reviews of imaging related to current clinical cases.
Pediatric GI Pathology Conference
Faculty and fellows review biopsy specimens with a pediatric pathologist. This is a highly interactive conference which teaches fellows to interpret pathology reports from a GI perspective and encourages discussion about prognosis and treatment of patients.
Faculty and fellows present journal articles related to the field with emphasis on complex cases currently being treated in inpatient and outpatient settings.
This is a multidisciplinary conference in which division faculty, fellows, nurses, social workers, and dieticians meet to discuss patient cases. The team assesses each patient and works to identify resources needed upon discharge.
Adult GI Clinical Conference
Faculty and fellows from adult and pediatric gastroenterology divisions present current clinical cases, research, and basic science topics for discussion.
Nutrition Support Rounds
A multidisciplinary team including division faculty, fellows, and dieticians meets to discuss the nutritional needs of patients on the inpatient unit. The team formulates an individualized dietary plan for each patient.
Adult GUT Club
The GUT Club, part of the Rochester Gastroenterological Society, invites speakers to present talks on various topics to a combined audience of adult and pediatric gastroenterologists from the region.
