Gastroenterology Fellowship Program

The HonorHealth Gastroenterology fellowship is committed to provide fellows a well-rounded education and training experience. Graduates of the program will obtain the skillset needed to provide exceptional patient care and competent comprehensive assessments and management of patients with acute and chronic gastrointestinal and liver disease in our community.

Program aims

  1. Train proficient gastroenterologists in all cognitive and procedural aspects, in a quality, patient-centered environment that is highly focused on safety, so they will be able to excel in clinical practice in a community-based setting.
  2. Train fellows to excel in the practice of gastroenterology and hepatology and afford them an opportunity to become competent in their field. Promote the goal of continuous practice improvement, with a life-long commitment to learning.

Our program is 36 months in length and can be undertaken after successful completion of an internal medicine residency from an ACGME-accredited training program.
