Educational Conferences

Yale University has a great tradition of education, and fellowship training is one of the most important missions of our section. Our program has many educational conferences, and fellows have additional opportunities to participate in many excellent conferences offered at Yale. 

Our section conferences are planned to enhance knowledge of pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology. Departmental conferences and Digestive Diseases (Adult Gastroenterology) conferences are aimed to provide broader knowledge of pediatrics and gastroenterology. Fellows have opportunities to attend various Yale University courses to prepare themselves for research. Fellows are also encouraged to attend national fellows’ conferences and national meetings of NASPGHAN and AGA.

Section Conferences

Fellows coordinate, attend and present in various section conferences. These conferences are mandatory.

Departmental Conferences

Fellows are encouraged to attend Grand rounds on a regular basis. However they must attend if topics involve gastroenterology/hepatology or are part of fellowship requirements (e.g.core competencies).

Fellows attend this conference regularly to present and listen to other fellows’ presentations. These seminars also have required talks for fellows education e.g. cultural competency.

Fellows are encouraged to attend discharge conferences on a regular basis. However, they must attend if the case involves gastroenterology/hepatology issues.

Digestive Diseases Conferences

Fellows are encouraged to attend conferences on a regular basis. However, they must attend if topics involve physiology or pathophysiology relevant to pediatric gastroenterology.

First year fellows present an interesting case with a review of the literature once every six weeks. All section members and adult gastroenterologists discuss the case and give feedback. Fellows are encouraged to attend conferences on a regular basis.
