Fellowship Training Program

Program Overview
The goal of the NYU Division of Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program is to provide a three-year curriculum leading to mastery of the clinical and endoscopic skills required to serve as an expert consultant and endoscopist for patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.

NYU GI Fellowship 3-Year Clinical Program
The first year fellows’ experience centers around acquisition of the necessary consultative and endoscopic skills required to serve as an expert gastroenterology consultant. One or two months of the year will be spent on our Tisch Hospital hepatology/liver transplant service. Additional training will be provided in radiology and pathology interpretation, and the fellows will be provided supplemental time with our experts in anorectal disease and esophagology. Senior fellows continue training to consolidate the skills learned as 1st year fellows. Increased elective time is provided for the completion of a research project and for identification and practice of subpecialization in gastroenterology/hepatology. Advanced endoscopy training in EUS and ERCP is initiated in the fellows’ second year with greater focus on development of these skills in the third year of fellowship.

Philip and Janice Levin Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Research
The NYU Division of Gastroenterology is pleased to offer an advanced research fellowship in gastroenterology to select applicants. Enrollees to this pathway will spend at least 2 years, including their first year engaged in learning and performing basic science research in one of the NYU School of Medicine’s world class laboratories or earning a Master’s degree in Health Services/Outcomes Research. During the non-research years, our research fellows are fully integrated into our clinical training program, such that upon graduation, after 4-5 years, the Phillip and Janice Levin Research fellows are equally comfortable in the clinical and research realms and are ideally suited to continue to perform as competitive translational gastrointestinal researchers.

Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Program
In addition to our 3-year Gastroenterology Fellowship Program, the Division offers an Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Program under the leadership of Gregory B. Haber, MD, chief of endoscopy and director, advanced therapeutics and innovation and David M. Poppers, MD, program director. The program accepts two fellows per year. Applications can be submitted via the ASGE’s Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Match.

Advanced Fellowship in Transplant Hepatology
This one-year fellowship is administrated under the direction of Sonja Olsen, MD. It provides extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical experience and the opportunity to participate in a variety of clinical research projects related to liver disease and liver transplantation.
Advanced Fellowship in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
This one-year fellowship provides extensive inpatient, outpatient, and research training.

Academic Conferences
The NYU Division of Gastroenterology provides a very rich educational experience. Our fellows attend a wide variety of academic conferences and seminars in which they learn the basics to the most cutting-edge aspects of gastroenterology/hepatology.

Clinical Sites
NYU Gastroenterology fellows rotate through three medical centers, all within a 10 block radius. Despite the close geographical proximity, the hospitals all provide an incredibly diverse clinical experience, including our community-based tertiary care referral center, Tisch Hospital of Langone Medical Center, Bellevue Hospital, one of the countries oldest and largest municipal hospitals, and the Manhattan VA Hospital.

The NYU training program is participating in the fellowship match and will accept applications through ERAS. Interviews will be scheduled from August to November 2017 for our four July 2018 clinical fellow positions.
