The mission of the Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology is to advance the understanding, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gastrointestinal and liver disease through patient care, education and research.
Clinical Services and Specialty Centers
From preventative services and routine medical care to specialized procedures such as liver transplant and cancer treatment, we offer compassionate care combined with stellar experience and knowledge to every patient.
The research program conducts original investigations related to the digestive system, including the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas, and then applies the knowledge gained from research to improve the care of patients with diseases of the digestive system.
Education and Training
We educate and train future leaders in research, education and clinical care. Whether you are a nurse, a researcher or a clinician, the training you receive here will be from nationally and internationally known and respected members of our faculty.
