About the program

We are a fully ACGME accredited gastroenterology and hepatology training program, offering a three-year clinical fellowship track. We recruit our fellowship trainees exclusively through the NRMP Match, accepting four new fellows each year. We offer an exceptional training experience, with our graduates performing tremendously well on the ABIM subspecialty exam.

Our unique curriculum allows fellows to meet all ACGME clinical requirements in their first two years. This allows us to work individually with each fellow to create a unique third-year curriculum specific to their career aspirations. Multiple elective opportunities are available, including pediatric GI, radiology, pathology, and surgery, which serve to create a greater depth and breadth in the educational experience. Our unique senior fellow electives include “Introduction to Advanced Endoscopy”, providing fellows exposure to advanced endoscopic techniques in preparation for 4th year training positions, and “advanced GI Consults”, which provides fellows an opportunity to function as a junior faculty person, supervising the consults team, with focused training experiences in small group teaching, feedback, and supervision.

Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), our main training site, has an international reputation for excellence and innovation in education, resear
