Fellowship in Gastroenterology


The training program in Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Health Systems is ACGME-accredited and offers three years of formal education designed to qualify the trainees to sit for and pass the Boards in the subspecialty of Gastroenterology and to become high-quality consultants in both the cognitive and endoscopic aspects of our discipline; they are also well-poised to pursue a career in the research or educational arenas.

The Divisions of Gastroenterology and Hepatology are devoted to educating fellows in the quality care of patients; clinical research in disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and liver; and the education of physicians in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients with gastrointestinal and hepatic disorders.

Our mission is accomplished by the divisions’ nationally and internationally recognized faculty working together to provide quality and cost-effective patient care and cutting-edge research. The faculty members serve as attending physicians actively involved in the Gastroenterology fellowship program at our four participating hospitals, educating physicians seeking a career in this specialty.

The faculty has a wide range of special interests, including inflammatory bowel disease, motility disorders, functional bowel disease, gastrointestinal cancer, disorders of the liver and pancreas, therapeutic and advanced endoscopy, Hepatology, liver, and intestinal transplantation, and health care disparities.
