Welcome to the Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Program
The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at the Medical College of Wisconsin is committed to the training of our fellows as academic pediatric gastroenterologists. The purpose of this fellowship is to train academic pediatric gastroenterologists who can function both as clinicians and scientists. The Fellowship Program will be under the direct supervision of Dr. Praveen Goday, Associate Professor of Pediatrics. In addition, once a research mentor has been identified, that individual will serve as the faculty advisor for the research portion of the program. Each fellow will also develop a scholarship oversight committee to oversee his/her progress through the program.
