During the first year, the Fellow will be exposed to a wide variety of patients with gastrointestinal, hepatic and nutritional diseases. Education will focus on the development of expertise for appropriate work-up, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. In addition, the Fellow will develop familiarity of the pediatric and adult gastrointestinal literature through literature search and active participation in patient care conferences, departmental conferences and journal clubs. Towards the end of the first year, the Fellow will identify a research mentor and together select a specific project to pursue during the second and third year of the Fellowship under the direction of the mentor. During the second and third years, the Fellow will learn research techniques, develop project for presentation at a national meeting and develop experience in writing a grant proposal.
