Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program

Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program

Message from the Program Director

The Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Gastroenterology Fellowship is an ACGME accredited program with the aim of producing well rounded, successful gastroenterologists. Over the course of three years fellows are exposed to a large diversity of luminal cases that are found at a large university referral center, as well as the special cases and issues that arise in the largest liver transplant center of the state. Our faculty aim to educate and demonstrate the arts of consultative medicine, thoughtful and evidenced based endoscopy, and interdisciplinary teamwork. We strive to graduate fellows that can have success in the community as respected local experts or in academia and teaching.

A particular strength of the program is the utilization of the clinical, laboratory and research resources of four varied institutions: The University Hospital (Rutgers NJMS), East Orange Veteran's Administration Hospital, and Hackensack University Medical Center. Fellows can see a wide range of patients from diverse backgrounds with problems that challenge both their technical and clinical skills.

Research and scholarly activity are important aspects of the fellowship as well. Fellows are given five to six months of dedicated research and elective time to propose, develop and implement projects that will be submitted to peer reviewed journals and national conferences.  These include basic research as well as prospective clinical trials. Mentorship is essential and will be provided to help the fellow accomplish these endeavors.

Above all, the faculty, nurses, and staff take great pride in training our fellows, and we have a long history of producing gastroenterologists that display a technical and clinical excellence that reflect on the reputation of our institution.

Rutgers University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and applications are encouraged from minority groups and physically disadvantaged individuals.
