From the Program Director:
The overarching goal of the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center is to provide superior training in all aspects of clinical and endoscopic gastroenterology and hepatology.
The program provides comprehensive education and experience in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gastrointestinal, pancreato-biliary, and liver diseases through patient care, research, and education in a professional environment that is conducive to learning. With more than 10,000 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed within the program on an annual basis, there is ample opportunity for endoscopic training and research.
The fellowship program is designed to provide extensive clinical and research experience guided by expert faculty members that have active research programs in all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology, allowing fellows to obtain training in clinical or basic research. The curriculum and evaluations incorporate the competency tenets of the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) - medical knowledge, patient care, practice based learning and improvement, systems based practice, professionalism, interpersonal and communication skills.
