Mount Sinai St. Luke's Roosevelt

Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Fellowship Training Program

The program is designed to provide physicians who have completed primary specialty training in internal medicine, with intensive training to prepare for careers in academic or clinical gastroenterology. The training program is for a minimum of three years divided into intensive clinical training for the first eighteen months followed by a focused experience in one area of clinical or academic gastroenterology. The period of clinical training focuses on the develop- ment of the skills needed for a consultant in the practice of gastroenterology including instruction in gastrointestinal diagnostic and therapeutic procedures involving the gastrointestinal/biliary tract and liver. The second half of the training program is focused on one area of expertise such as advanced endoscopy, hepatology, nutri- tion, gastrointestinal oncology, motility or basic research. Fellows rotate through the Hepatology Division at Mount Sinai Hospital Center and receive level two training in liver disease and transplantation.

Specialized experiences are available under the auspices of a research preceptor. Presently, these preceptors include:

· Donald Kotler, MD
