Gastroenterology Fellowship Program

Dear Applicant,

Welcome to the Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. We are committed to preparing highly qualified physicians for careers in academic and clinical gastroenterology. Our division has enjoyed enormous growth over the past few years, which has enhanced opportunities for optimal career development.

A 651-bed hospital located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, just five miles from Manhattan, NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital provides gastroenterology fellows the facilities to gain a broad clinical experience that will allow them to feel comfortable practicing this discipline in any setting. Our fellowship program offers training in the full range of clinical and academic gastroenterology practice. In addition to general gastroenterology training, the program provides extensive experience in clinical hepatology, as well as opportunities to participate in clinical research and other scholarly pursuits. We also offer a separate forth year training program in advanced endoscopic procedures, including endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).

Training emphasis is placed on applying and integrating evidence-based medicine into daily clinical practice. Our program values commitment to compassionate patient care and dedication to excellence. We have a devoted faculty of physician educators who take pride in their involvement with the fellows’ clinical training and academic development. We are confident that the program trains well-rounded and clinically confident future gastroenterologists.

Once again, thank you for your interest in our Gastroenterology Fellowship Program.
