Program description

At Mayo Clinic, our staff of eight 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. Trainees 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, fellows have been able to pursue a broad variety of academic interests.


The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has accredited the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship for one fellow per academic year.


The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic fulfills the training requirements prescribed by the American Board of Pediatrics. Graduates are qualified to sit for the pediatric gastroenterology subspecialty certification.
