Gastroenterology Fellowship

Gastroenterology Fellowship

The content of the Gastroenterology Fellowship curriculum is based upon an assessment of the knowledge and skills desired at the completion of fellowship training, review of the AOA and ACGME requirements and the Tasks Force recommendations from the American Gastroenterological Association and American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. This curriculum is written in an effort to set the highest standard for excellence in training.

The gastroenterology training at Kent Hospital consists of 3 years. The core clinical curriculum requires a minimum of 18 months of clinical activity and consists of traditional inpatient and outpatient consultation experience supplemented by conferences and didactic sessions. A longitudinal outpatient experience is required during their 3 years of training. Training in the basic endoscopic skills is supported by the curriculum. Training in advanced procedures is reserved for selected trainees who have demonstrated endoscopic skill and desire procedural experience for advanced interventional endoscopy.
