Advanced Fellowship in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
NYU School of Medicine’s Advanced Fellowship in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), offered by the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, trains future leaders in IBD clinical care, education, and research. Each year, we accept one fellow, who must be a postgrad and have completed an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited gastroenterology fellowship. The Advanced Fellowship in IBD is not ACGME accredited.
During this one-year program, you work under the supervision of our expert physicians, surgeons, and other team members and receive comprehensive education and extensive inpatient, outpatient, and research experience in the area of IBD.
As an IBD fellow, you spend roughly half of your time in clinical inpatient and outpatient IBD care, during which a portion of each week is dedicated to endoscopic procedures. Inpatient care takes place at NYU Langone locations, where you work with our medical and surgical services. Your outpatient care rotations take place at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. Approximately 20 percent of your time is spent working with our surgical team, and 30 percent is devoted to research.
During inpatient rotation months, you work with our faculty and see a wide range of patients with IBD who are treated medically and surgically. Following these patients over time in our outpatient settings allows you to monitor their responses to treatments and establish and build skills as a provider of comprehensive, high-quality care. Our varied outpatient sites provide you with experience diagnosing and treating IBD in diverse patient populations from a wide range of demographic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Fellows help coordinate and participate in our bimonthly multidisciplinary IBD conferences. Our division’s rich array of conferences includes weekly grand rounds, fellows’ core conferences, a journal club, and others.
Our program offers you opportunities to conduct research through a variety of clinical, translational, and educational projects related to IBD. A research mentor helps you develop an academic project and offers ongoing feedback and assistance throughout the training year. You are expected to submit your work for peer review and possible presentation in the form of original research, systematic reviews, or case series.
