The Division of Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases at George Washington University offers a high-quality three-year fellowship learning and understanding the full spectrum of digestive diseases.
Clinically focused, fellows learn to provide thorough, evidence-based, consultative care, as well as mastery of a full range of endoscopic skills, and the fundamentals of clinical research.
Centrally located in the nation’s capital, fellows at GW encounter a wide variety of cultures, patient experiences and the full spectrum of the digestive diseases. Diversity amongst our fellows and faculty members contributes to our commitment to provide a well-rounded, humanistic experience.
Fellows divide their time between the George Washington University Hospital and the VA Medical Center in Washington, D.C. working with experienced, dedicated faculty members. Fellows enrolled in the training program take a hands-on approach to learning. This approach is realized through clinical rotations, the outpatient experience, a dedicated mentorship program, and a state-of-the-art simulation skills lab. Fellows will gain the necessary skills to perform diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, to analyze video capsule endoscopy, and to interpret high-definition esophageal manometry.
Fellows have the opportunity to work with our talented interventional endoscopists to learn advanced skills including endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), radio-frequency ablation, and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR).
Upon completion of fellowship, graduates are eligible for board certification and are well trained to enter a career clinical practice and education.
