Gastroenterology and Hepatology Education
Our state-of-the-art endoscopy suite offers all of the technologies available for advanced therapeutic endoscopy, covering all facets of gastroenterology and liver disease. Because our GI faculty members have a broad scope of expertise, fellows receive mentoring in a wide range of interests. The GI Fellowship Program was reviewed by the ACGME in 2007 and received the full five year accreditation.
For medical students, our faculty lecture and serve as tutors for the Problem Based Learning modules. Drs. Mark Pochapin and Brian Bosworth coordinate the 2-week course on Gastroenterology & Hepatology during the Basis of Disease course, and 4th year medical students have assisted in writing and teaching small group patient case discussions. The faculty also supervises medical students during their third-year internal medicine clerkships.
Fourth year medical students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clinical electives: as an integral member of the general GI consult service, rotating through the Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, participating in the Hepatology and Liver Transplant service, and serving on the Pancreaticobiliary service. They also have the opportunity to spend more focused time pursuing basic science research at the Center for Hepatitis C (8 week blocks), or translational research in gastrointestinal inflammation and cancer (2 year commitment).
