Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship (Minnesota)
The three-year Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota includes both hands-on clinical training and experience with clinical or basic research. When you successfully complete this fellowship, you are well qualified to assume a faculty position in academic pediatric gastroenterology or to practice in a clinical setting. Nine pediatric gastroenterologists provide teaching and mentorship.
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
- Opportunity to obtain a certificate or master's degree through the Center for Translational Science Activities
- 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 both nationally and internationally.
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 American Board of Pediatrics accredits the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The fellowship is open to physicians who have successfully completed an accredited pediatric residency program.
The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship fulfills the requirement for subspecialty training in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition as prescribed by the American Board of Pediatrics. Graduates who successfully complete the program are board eligible for the pediatric gastroenterology subspecialty certification.
The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship was established in 1994. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has accredited the program for one fellow per academic year.
