Education and Training
Division faculty members participate in a number of multidisciplinary conferences, including a weekly transplant conference, a monthly radiology conference (also attended by pediatric surgeons), and a monthly pathology conference. Members of the division also present at Resident Teaching Conferences and the Department's Grand Rounds.
We are currently applying for an ACGME-accredited, three-year fellowship program. Our goal is to train physician-scientists who will have the skills necessary to become successful academic pediatric gastroenterologists with active research programs.
Our division partners with the Division of Gastroenterology in the Duke Department of Medicine, which is regarded as one of the top gastroenterology divisions in the country. The physicians in these two divisions serve a broad geographic area and have a large patient population with chronic gastrointestinal and liver disease. Fellows will have the opportunity to pursue specific clinical and/or research programs with comprehensive training in all aspects of contemporary gastroenterology and hepatology.
During the first year, fellows will have intensive exposure to inpatient and outpatient gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. They will develop skills in relevant procedures and will be exposed to both liver and bowel transplantation and adult gastroenterology. In their second and third years, fellows will focus on research. They will be expected to complete relevant course work and other academic fellowship requirements, including completion of a scholarly research project.
Please check back often for updates regarding the status of our fellowship training program.
