Inflammatory Bowel Disease Fellowship Co-Director Edward V. Loftus Jr., M.D.
The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offers you broad opportunities and advanced training in all clinical aspects of IBD. The IBD Interest Group, including 10 gastroenterologists with a specific interest in IBD, sees more than 1,300 new patients each year in the outpatient IBD Clinic.
As an IBD fellow, you work closely within a strong multidisciplinary team that includes experts in colorectal surgery, radiology and pathology. Fellows also receive broad exposure to a variety of research programs, such as clinical therapeutic trials, epidemiology, clinical pharmacology and immunology, and are able to tailor an academic training program to meet their individual interests.
This one-year fellowship is designed for the gastroenterologist who plans a career in an academic setting with a major focus on clinical practice and research in IBD.
Mayo Clinic was one of the first institutions to provide advanced training in IBD. The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Fellowship began in 1998, and since that time, we have graduated numerous fellows who have gone on to become leading experts within the IBD community.
