Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship Program

Research

Clinical and basic research projects are part of the training program for fellows on both the Research and Clinical Tracks.  Successful completion of a research project including publication is required for graduation from the fellowship program. Fellows choose their research project, which may include clinical or basic research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The fellow and mentor conceptualize the project during the first year of fellowship.  Fellows are encouraged to present research results at local research conferences and national meetings, and submit manuscripts for publication.

Many faculty within the division are extramurally funded, including NIH, providing a variety of opportunities for research. In addition, several faculty outside of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology work on related topics and have mentored past fellows.
