About Our Program

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is an ACGME - accredited three-year training program that offers exceptional training in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, pancreatology, nutrition and endoscopic procedures.

The goal of the fellowship program is to train fellows to become independent and productive academic pediatric gastroenterologists or leaders in clinical practice. The fellowship emphasizes:

  • The advancement of the field of pediatric gastroenterology
  • Advocacy for the gastrointestinal and nutritional health of children
  • Skills necessary for lifelong learning

Our fellows receive comprehensive training through direct patient care, extensive didactic, conferences and rotations.

Our fellowship program emphasizes clinical training during the first year and research during the subsequent two years. However, during years two and three, clinical skills will continue to be developed.
