Thank you for considering the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic. Our program provides an educational opportunity that embraces the three shields of Mayo Clinic: clinical practice, education and research.
Our clinic encompasses patients referred regionally, nationally and internationally. Mayo Clinic's unique collaborative approach allows us to work closely with other pediatric subspecialties to provide expert, compassionate and coordinated care to patients with complex aerodigestive issues, inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease in our specific clinics.
Our training program also affords the opportunity to learn about and participate in liver transplants. Our close working relationship with adult gastroenterology staff provides opportunities to learn from world experts in motility disorders, pancreatic abnormalities and advanced endoscopic techniques.
A large part of a fellowship is furthering one's skills as an educator. Mayo provides you with opportunities to teach pediatric residents and medical students during both inpatient and outpatient rotations. Courses designed for improving teaching skills for aspiring clinician-educators are available.
Many opportunities for laboratory, translational and clinical research abound at Mayo Clinic. In collaboration with adult gastroenterology, we offer a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral research training grant (T32). This 3.5-year track prepares you for an independent research career. Fellows interested in translational and clinical research may obtain a master's degree or a postdoctoral diploma through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science during their research time.
In summary, our fellowship offers a variety of options and unlimited opportunities within the exciting world of pediatric gastroenterology. We provide outstanding tools, collaborators and mentors to launch your clinical or research career.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
