Duke University’s Division of Gastroenterology offers a three-year training program in general gastroenterology and hepatology that prepares physicians and scientists for careers in academic gastroenterology.  Our fellows choose one of two tracks: a clinical track with training in clinical and quality improvement research methodologies and a T-32 grant supported research track that provides advanced research training for physician-scientists.

The Duke GI Division includes more than 60 faculty members with expertise in all clinical and research areas of gastroenterology and hepatology.    Fellows have access to comprehensive clinical training in all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology, as well as access to research training, advanced clinical skills and training in medical education.  In the the Duke GI training program, our fellows experience the wide breadth of general and advanced gastroenterology and hepatology practiced in a variety of inpatient care settings (Tertiary academic care hospital, Veterans Affairs hospital, and two community-based hospitals) and outpatient clinics and ambulatory surgery centers.

The Division of Gastroenterology also offers advanced training in Transplant Hepatology (as a fourth year of GI training or as part of the Pilot Program in Transplant Hepatology training after completion of two years of general GI training) and Advanced Endoscopy.
