Join the accomplished roster of physicians who’ve graduated from Geisinger’s Gastroenterology Fellowship — a proven program that gives you hands-on experience starting day one.
When you join Geisinger’s Gastroenterology Fellowship program, your hands-on training starts on your first day. And thanks to a curriculum that’s tailored to your interests, you’ll graduate ready to excel with any practice you choose.
Our three-year, ACGME-accredited program — in place for more than 20 years — is one of just a few in the nation that combines training in gastroenterology and nutrition. And, in response to our fellows’ request, we also offer a pediatric rotation.
You’ll work with a team of 22 full-time gastroenterologists, GI/hepatologists and nutrition specialists who perform more than 5,000 outpatient consultations and 12,500 endoscopic procedures annually.
By the time you complete the program, you will have:
- Performed about 2,000 procedures, from general to advanced
- Gained outpatient and inpatient clinical training
- Been exposed to advanced endoscopic procedures and liver transplantation
Our gastroenterology fellows are also trained in all major diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures including:
- Exposure to endoscopic ultrasonography
- Endoscopic mucosal resection
- Barrett’s ablation
- Anorectal and esophageal manometry
- Standard 24-hour and Bravo pH testing
- Hydrogen breath testing
- Capsule endoscopy
Another feature that sets our Gastroenterology Fellowship apart from other programs? Our faculty.
You’ll join an integrated health system with a strong tradition of research, and our faculty, drawn from gastroenterology and nutrition, are all passionate lifelong learners who are eager to instill that quality in our fellows, too. With their guidance, you’ll undertake original research for presentation and/or publication. It’s a key part of the experience here.
If you want to be part of a program that has fostered exceptional talent in the field of gastroenterology for more than two decades — physicians with top-notch skills and boundless intellectual curiosity — you’re a good match for us.
