We welcome applications from pediatricians who are committed to patient care, education, and scholarship and who have completed an accredited pediatric residency program and are eligible for the Pediatric Boards. Fellows who are board eligible must become board certified during their fellowship in order to be eligible for the Pediatric Gastroenterology sub-board.

After Graduation

At the end of their training our fellows are competent to practice independently in the management of gastrointestinal disorders. They possess the adequate skills to perform procedures without supervision. Graduating fellows have pursued careers in academic medicine as well as private practice. Some of them continue to participate in basic and clinical research activities.
