Rotations

Inpatient Experience

General GI Service

Primarily in the first year, fellows gain clinical experience as consultants in gastroenterology on the inpatient service. They field consults covering a diverse spectrum of GI and Liver Diseases. Their work is directly supervised and reviewed by two GI teaching attending physicians during daily rounds, one of whom is a dedicated GI hospitalist.

Cornell and Columbia Liver Service

Fellows rotate through inpatient hepatology services at two leading institutions with well-over combined total of 1000 liver transplants. These services are staffed by leading transplant hepatology attendings and offers fellows an opportunity to learn how to manage pre- and post-transplant patients.

Advanced Endoscopy Service

Fellows work under the tutelage of attendings at the forefront of endoscopy. In addition to participating in standard endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound, and luminal stenting, they participate in cutting-edge techinques such as per oral endoscopic myotomy, endoluminal anti-reflux procedures, endoluminal bariatric procedures, therapeutic endoscopic ultraound, endoscopic submucosal dissection, direct cholangioscopy, probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy, photodynamic therapy, among others.

Outpatient Experience

Fellows have a ½ day of ambulatory continuity clinic every week. The fellows have their own panel of patients that they build from the first clinic as they see initial consultations and continue follow-up of other patients. The full plethora of GI conditions managed under the supervision of a rotating panel of GI attendings.

GI Endoscopy

Each fellow will get direct supervision for techniques of EGD (including hemostatic measures, banding, dilation, and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy), flexible sigmoidoscopy, and colonoscopy (polypectomy and control of bleeding). Typically, by the end of the first year, fellows will have met the ACGME required numbers for EGD and colonoscopy. In the 2nd and 3rd years, fellows continue to have a weekly ambulatory endoscopy block to further hone their endoscopic skills.

GI Specialty Electives

Starting with the 1st year and increasingly in the 2nd and 3rd years, fellows will complete elective blocks in specialty areas in gastroenterology under the supervision of leading experts. Electives include GI oncology, inflammatory bowel disease, motility, small bowel, nutrition.
