Fellowship Director (Digestive Diseases)
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 academic 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. Six new trainees enter the program each July.

After the initial 18 months, those fellows who are destined for clinical practice will receive additional clinical training that often includes an area of focused interest. During the Advanced Training Period these Fellows receive in-depth training in biliary and pancreatic endoscopy. Trainees are also expected to participate in relevant clinical research under the preceptorship of a designated faculty member.
The Investigational Training Program in Gastroenterology supports trainees interested in acquiring research training in the physiology and pathophysiology of gastrointestinal tract function. The training program's faculty include investigators that study cell and molecular biology and physiology and pathophysiology of intestinal epithelium and the pancreatic acinar cell with particular emphasis on the mechanisms of intestinal ion transport as related to diarrheal disorders and cellular events related to the initiation of pancreatitis.
This is a one year funded training program with a focus on endoscopic ultrasound and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (EUS/ERCP). The advanced fellowship starts in July of each year and applications are accepted year-long. The position is filled in the winter or spring over one year prior to the start date.
- The Section of Digestive Diseases offers a one-year fellowship in Transplant Hepatology. This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and fulfills the requirement for the ABIM certifying examination in transplant hepatology. Our program offers the full range of training with exposure to adult and pediatric transplantation and living donor liver transplant performed at Yale New Haven Hospital.
