Clinical training takes place primarily at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, located on the Upper East Side of New York City. The hospital is ranked among the top hospitals in the nation and the #1 hospital in NYC by U.S. News and World Report. The main hospital is a 2600-bed medical center with more than 2 million visits annually.

Clinical activities in gastroenterology are focused in the main hospital, as well as an adjacent outpatient Weill Greenberg Building. More than 12,000 endoscopic procedures are performed each year in our endoscopy facilities, including diagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), colonoscopy, deep enteroscopy, and video capsule endoscopy. Furthermore, our pioneering advanced endoscopy service provides cutting-edge diagnostic interventional and therapeutic modalities (including endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound, per oral endoscopic myotomy, endoluminal anti-reflux procedures, endoluminal bariatric procedures, etc).

The Jay Monahan Center provides state-of-art comprehensive outpatient care of GI oncological, esophageal, and anorectal conditions. Services include ambulatory esophageal pH testing, esophageal manometry, and anorectal manometry.

The Jill Roberts Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center is one of the nation’s leading multidisciplinary centers for the diagnosis, comprehensive care and innovative treatment of patients with IBD.

Fellows also spend time on the Liver Service at Columbia University Medical Center, where they focus on the management of advanced liver disease and liver transplant patients.

The David H. Koch building opened in April 2018. A new 750,000-square foot facility, it offers a range of services, including a new space dedicated to multidisciplinary care for digestive diseases and endoscopy.
