Medical Student & Resident Education

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology is actively involved in the teaching of medical students and residents in addition to our fully-accredited fellowship program.

Medical Students

The main venue for resident and student education is a rotation in the inpatient unit, where two to three first-year residents, a senior resident, and medical students participate in a four-week rotation that provides a complete and unified approach for the evaluation and management of patients with common gastrointestinal problems that pediatricians may encounter in the practice of general pediatrics. Teaching is provided through direct patient care, bedside teaching, small-group discussions, and didactic conferences. Electives are also offered in the Gastroenterology outpatient clinic for medical students, residents, and visiting students/residents from other academic institutions.

Second- or Third-Year Resident Elective

Second- and third-year residents have the opportunity to complete an elective four-week pediatric gastroenterology rotation that provides a complete and unified approach for the outpatient evaluation and management of patients with common gastrointestinal problems that pediatricians may encounter in the practice of general pediatrics.
