Pediatric GI Fellowship – Third Year

Majority of time is spent on research project (9 months). In the second and third years, a minimum of two to three hours per week is spent with the fellow in planning and critiquing research results obtained. In addition, in the monthly fellows meeting with the fellowship director, progress in the fellows’ research projects is reviewed. The fellows receive support and guidance in the preparation of manuscripts and presentations from the individual faculty members with whom they are doing research as well as the group of pediatric gastroenterology faculty to whom they make formal presentations. Our fellows are expected to make presentations at national seminars, such as the annual meetings of the North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, the American Gastroenterology Association, and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases
