Program overview

Our program is varied and emphasizes hands-on training. 

You’ll do one-month rotations, with assignments to:

  • GI procedures
  • GI lab, including manometry, pH studies and capsule endoscopy
  • GI consults
  • Hepatology consults
  • Pediatrics 
  • Nutrition

Evidence-based medicine is assigned in one-month blocks and as requested during the academic year. We hold separate hepatology and gastroenterology continuity clinics each week. 

The hepatology rotation includes a weekly transplant clinic, and the nutrition rotation includes malnutrition, high-risk obesity and tube-feeding clinics.

On average, our fellows perform 733 EGD procedures and 857 colonoscopies during their training.

The fellow experience

Overall, you’ll receive state-of-the-art training in consultative gastroenterology and hepatology at a nationally recognized, integrated health system. You’ll hone excellent endoscopic skills and participate in meaningful quality improvement and population management projects.

Geisinger has a long-established electronic health record, which will also give you access to data not available at most large academic centers.
