The Duke Division of Gastroenterology offers post-doctoral research training to physicians and scientists. The Research Training Program brings together MD fellows from our clinical Gastroenterology Fellowship and PhD post-doctoral fellows from the laboratories and research programs of our faculty.
In order to participate in the Gastroenterology Research Training Program, fellows must be accepted into the Gastroenterology Fellowship or the research program of a Division of Gastroenterology faculty member. Funding for fellows in this program comes from a number of funding mechanisms including the Duke GI T32, the Veterans Administration, and the funding of the individual faculty members.
