Gastroenterology Fellowship Program

Why Choose Our Program? 

Our program prides itself on having the resources and flexibility to tailor an individualized learning plan for the development of the trainee’s career interests beyond the core requirements. Our main goal is to provide Internal Medicine specialists with subspecialty training in the fields of digestive and liver diseases, allowing competence to be achieved in the requisite knowledge base, critical thinking skills, procedural skills, humanistic and ethical skills encompassed by these fields.

  • In a carefully structured and supervised setting, trainees are exposed to clinical and procedural activities designed to gradually increase in complexity while they gradually decrease in the level of directed supervision.
  • Trainees are provided structured opportunities to develop teaching skills at a variety of levels.
  • Trainees participate in scientific research as a means of promoting the development of the investigative and inquisitive critical thinking skills required of subspecialty consultants in order to generate new knowledge and improve patient care.

What Our Fellows are Saying

“I chose the University of Rochester because of the people here, from Attendings who invest heavily in our education and career development, to co-fellows, to others in our department including our program coordinator, nurses, advanced practice providers, secretaries and patient techs, who together create a supportive, inclusive and positive environment.”
