Advanced Fellowships

INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE ADVANCED FELLOWSHIP


The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center of the University of Pittsburgh Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition is one of the largest programs in the U.S., offering a multidisciplinary complement of clinical care to a large patient cohort, all supported by a translational research program centered on precision medicine and diverse epidemiology as well as IBD genetics. The UPMC IBD Center has initiated the first IBD subspecialty medical home in the nation, Total Care-IBD, in partnership with the UPMC Health Plan.

The UPMC IBD Center offers a one-year, non-accredited fellowship opportunity for gastroenterologists interested in advanced study in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis diagnosis, disease management, and clinical and translational research. This program is geared toward an academic appointment, though the training experience will be adapted to individual goals and interests.

Key features of the UPMC IBD Advanced Fellowship opportunity include:

The successful candidate will be hired as an instructor of medicine with the University of Pittsburgh | UPMC Division of Gastroentrology, Hepatology and Nutrition.  While education, research and clinical time will be the priority for this training program, the advanced fellow will also be responsible for eight (8) weeks of attending on an inpatient gastroenterology hospital service.
