Medical Student & Resident Education

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. This experience provides a unified approach for the evaluation and management of patients with common gastrointestinal problems. You learn through direct patient care, bedside teaching, small-group discussions, and didactic conferences. Also, you may select from electives offered in the Gastroenterology outpatient clinic for medical students, residents, and visiting students/residents from other academic institutions.


Core Gastroenterology Rotation

First-year pediatric residents take the opportunity to rotate through the inpatient gastroenterology unit. During this rotation, residents focus on the management and treatment of gastrointestinal and hepatic problems from the inpatient standpoint.

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.
