Welcome to Digestive Diseases

Loren Laine, MD

Welcome to the Yale School of Medicine Section of Digestive Diseases website. Our program has a long history of excellence in clinical care, research and education. Since forming one of the nation's first sections of hepatology and then gastroenterology over 50 years ago, the Yale Digestive Diseases Section has had an enduring and continuing impact on fundamental and clinical investigation in digestive and liver disorders.

We currently offer comprehensive clinical and research programs in a broad array of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. We also provide training to 18 fellows in our ACGME-accredited GI fellowship program (including clinical and NIH-sponsored research fellows) and advanced fellows in liver transplantation and interventional endoscopy.

The Digestive Diseases Section has some of the most renowned physicians and scientists in the world, including recent presidents of the major U.S. gastroenterology and hepatology organizations (American Gastroenterological Association, American College of Gastroenterology, and American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases). The Section's faculty is committed to advancing the science and practice of gastroenterology and hepatology by translating laboratory and clinical investigation into cutting-edge, state-of-the-art patient care.
