Gastroenterology Fellowship

Resident tending to a patient

Our Philosophy

The Gastroenterology (GI) and Hepatology fellowship at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a three-year program designed to train gastroenterologists who will perform thorough clinical and diagnostic assessments, provide high quality, evidence-based, compassionate patient care and demonstrate lifelong learning. The lifelong learning tradition developed during their training will allow the graduating fellows to stay up to date with the gastrointestinal and hepatologic diseases literature.
