Director's Welcome

Thank you for considering a fellowship in pediatric gastroenterology at Mayo Clinic. We strive to provide an educational opportunity that is true to the three shields of Mayo Clinic: clinical practice, education and research.

Our clinic encompasses patients referred regionally, nationally and internationally. We work closely with other pediatric subspecialties to provide expert, compassionate and coordinated care to complex patients with aerodigestive issues, inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease in our specific clinics.

You will also have an opportunity to learn and participate in liver transplants. Our close working relationship with adult gastroenterology provides opportunities to learn from world experts in motility disorders, pancreatic abnormalities and advanced endoscopic techniques.

A large part of a fellowship is furthering skills as an educator. You will have opportunities to teach pediatric residents and medical students during both inpatient and outpatient rotations. Courses in furthering teaching skills as a clinician educator are available.

Many opportunities for laboratory, translational and clinical research abound at Mayo Clinic through collaborations with pediatric subspecialties and adult gastroenterology. Fellows interested in translational and clinical research may obtain a master's degree through the Center for Translational Science Activities during their research time.

In summary, the goal of our fellowship extends beyond preparing you for competency in the exciting world of pediatric gastroenterology. We can provide you outstanding tools and collaborators to further your career in education and research.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
