Our goal is to provide an excellent, well-rounded educational experience that prepares fellows for a successful career in diagnosing and treating patients with digestive disorders. We have outstanding clinicians, researchers and a large, diverse patient population. Our role as a tertiary center within a large integrated health network provides the unique opportunity to diagnose and treat both common and unusual gastrointestinal disorders. We look forward to teaching our fellows in this clinical setting, and are committed to training future gastroenterologists. Thank you very much for your interest in our program!– Dr. Lyle Shlager, Program Director
