Our division provides residents with patient-care experiences and conferences that help develop their knowledge in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology.
As an internal medicine resident, you can enhance your training by participating in our residency elective, conducting research in our division and attending our conferences.
This inpatient rotation exposes you to the common problems encountered in diagnosing and managing diseases in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. You will perform histories and physicals on patients on whom the gastroenterology service at your hospital is consulted, present those patients to the attending, and maintain new and follow-up consult notes. You will provide differential diagnoses for a variety of conditions, with particular emphasis on identifying conditions that are immediately life-threatening or which require immediate intervention. You will not be required to perform procedures, but will be encouraged to observe procedures performed on the patients you follow.
Our meetings will sharpen your diagnostic and disease management skills, increase your understanding of a variety of digestive disorders and keep you current in the field.
In our division, you'll have opportunities to work alongside accomplished physician-scientists on research projects investigating the pathogenesis, treatment and prevention of gastrointestinal diseases and liver conditions.
