Program description

At Mayo Clinic, our staff of pediatric gastroenterologists works closely with pediatric surgeons, radiologists, adult gastroenterologists and a number of subspecialists to deliver the best possible patient care. The three-year Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship includes both hands-on clinical training and experience with clinical, translational or basic research. You are able to work closely with faculty who serve as teachers and mentors.

During your training, you have access to:

  • Comprehensive training in pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology
  • Opportunities to gain skills in clinical, translational, bench, education or quality research
  • The opportunity to obtain a postdoctoral certificate or master's degree through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science
  • Exposure to advanced endoscopic techniques

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship is geared toward the training of successful academic pediatric gastroenterologists. We have shown a significant track record of attracting and training physicians who have pursued successful academic careers.

During the last five years, program participants, in collaboration with several colleagues within Mayo Clinic, have published nearly 150 peer-reviewed publications. Because of the wide range of interests within our division and across the institution, our fellows have been able to pursue a broad variety of academic interests.


The program fulfills the training requirements as defined by the American Board of Pediatrics and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).


After successfully completing the program, you are eligible for subspecialty pediatric gastroenterology certification offered by the American Board of Pediatrics.
