The Gastroenterology Fellowship at Cedars-Sinai, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), aims to provide fellows with outstanding clinical training in a scholarly environment so that they can develop into highly competent clinical gastroenterologists, subspecialty consultants or physician-scientists. The program is structured for trainees to achieve appropriate medical knowledge and procedural skills in the fields of digestive diseases and hepatology as well as to obtain the interpersonal and communication skills and professional attitudes necessary to function as effective consultants.
The comprehensive training program covers three years and the fellowship offers both a clinical track and a research track in order to tailor the experience toward each fellow's career goals. Fellows participate in the care of patients with a diverse range of clinical issues at all stages of illness. Throughout the program, all fellows also maintain a continuity of care clinic experience and participate in didactic educational activities.
The Cedars-Sinai Karsh Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology—ranked second in the U.S. for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report—is home to many internationally recognized gastroenterologists, hepatologists and physician-scientists. All faculty members are dedicated to the clinical and research training of our fellows and represent every subspecialty in the field including general gastroenterology, pancreaticobiliary diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology, nutrition and motility disorders. Cedars-Sinai also has a state-of-the-art endoscopy unit, where more than 500 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are performed each month, as well as modern research facilities for basic, translational and clinical investigation.
