Your medical training and the years that you have dedicated to becoming a doctor have provided you with a substantial amount of scientific knowledge and skill. To gain expertise in your chosen field of gastroenterology, further dedication to training in clinical medicine and research is necessary. At Thomas Jefferson University Medical College, we offer fellowships in gastroenterology and hepatology emphasizing a distinctive blend of laboratory and clinical training. The major objectives of the program are:

  • To provide an optimal clinical setting in all areas within the field of gastroenterology.
  • To pursue research which links clinical findings with published scientific data and laboratory investigations.
  • To maintain an active academic curriculum which includes bedside teaching, endoscopic instruction and a comprehensive gastrointestinal conference schedule.

We believe this hands-on combination, together with our respect for the individual's capacity and desire for knowledge, provides an exceptional postgraduate training program in gastroenterology and hepatology. We are proud of our low teacher to student ratio which allows for personalized attention for those who want to learn in a progressive and intensive environment. Our staff of gastroenterologists and hepatologists hold the impressive credentials and experience required by a major medical center. They share the genuine desire to impact their knowledge and skills to others.
