Continuing Medical Education

Haque’s DIGEST is a monthly literature review that includes selected journal articles on research and development in gastroenterology. The DIGEST is compiled by Mahfuzul Haque, MD, and shared with Duke GI faculty and fellows as a way to stay on top of current research. Articles in the DIGEST, which typically have a clinical focus, are selected by Dr. Haque and do not reflect a comprehensive survey of the literature. Read Haque’s DIGEST.

Dr. Haque is an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology and director of the GI Endoscopy at the Durham VA Medical Center.
