Training

The Postgraduate Training Program in Digestive Diseases at Yale School of Medicine is designed to prepare individuals for academic careers in digestive diseases. A scholarly environment ensures a broad educational experience for trainees interested in clinical practice, clinical research, or basic science research. All physicians enter after completing a residency in Internal Medicine. Postdoctoral fellows who have completed their doctoral studies or graduate students are also major participants in our research training program. Five or six new trainees enter the program each July.
