The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine is a three-year ACGME-accredited program with 18 months dedicated to clinical training and at least five months dedicated to faculty-mentored research.
The comprehensive clinical curriculum provides fellows with rigorous training in gastrointestinal, pancreaticobiliary and liver diseases, including an extensive endoscopy experience. Additional electives in areas such as gastrointestinal motility, endoscopic ultrasound, advanced gastrointestinal radiology, pediatric gastroenterology or gastrointestinal pathology are available.
Fellows are trained at the teaching hospitals of the IU School of Medicine—Indianapolis campus: Indiana University Health, Eskenazi Health and the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center. Fellows spend approximately one-third of the training period in each setting, gaining clinical experience in endoscopy and as an inpatient gastroenterology consultant. In addition, dedicated hepatology rotations are conducted at IU Health.
Training for fellows includes one half-day per week of continuity clinic at Eskenazi Health or the VA Medical Center. Fellows gain exposure to a variety of common gastrointestinal disorders and work with diverse populations. Throughout training, fellows participate in dedicated outpatient clinics for inflammatory bowel disease, motility disorders, pancreaticobiliary diseases and liver diseases, including pre- and post-liver transplant clinics.
