Gastroenterology Fellowship

About Our Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Gastroenterology Fellowship at Lahey Hospital provides the trainee with broad-based, comprehensive experience in digestive diseases. Faculty members provide expertise in:

  • General gastroenterology and hepatology
  • Transplant hepatology
  • Therapeutic endoscopy
  • Motility
  • Nutrition
  • Inflammatory bowel disease

    Fellows gain proficiency in all areas of gastroenterology and hepatology. Approximately eighteen months are spent on the gastroenterology service, which comprises the inpatient service for patients admitted with primary gastrointestinal disorders, as well as the consultation service. Lahey Hospital is a busy liver transplant center, and trainees spend a total of six months on the inpatient liver service caring for patients with complicated liver disease.

    Fellows maintain their own continuity clinic, which meets weekly for three years. Fellows also rotate into IBD and Hepatology outpatient clinics during their third year. Additional rotations in endoscopy, clinical research, motility and nutrition round out the experience. There is a rich conference schedule including didactic lectures, instruction in pathology and radiology, and case discussions. Lahey is a major teaching hospital for Tufts University School of Medicine and fellows have multiple opportunities for teaching of residents and medical students. Graduating fellows are well suited for a career in academic clinical gastroenterology.
