Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York
The Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Fellowship Program at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York is a fully accredited ACGME fellowship and training program. Eight pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition attendings provide our fellows with the clinical, didactic and research guidance necessary for comprehensive training in the field of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition. We provide a progressive educational experience that includes development of procedural skills, responsibility for patient care and participation in research.
During your clinical training, your time will be spent learning the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal disease as well as nutritional diagnosis and therapy. In addition, you will develop expertise as an endoscopist. During the research-training component, you will develop a protocol, perform the necessary experiments and tabulate and interpret the collected data. We work with you to assist you in completion of your scholarly activity training requirements. We have a strong commitment to your education. We offer a weekly clinical case conference, educational conference and pathology conference, as well as a CME-approved weekly pediatric gastroenterology grand rounds program. A monthly journal club and the radiology conference in addition to our many multi-disciplinary conferences are all part of your educational experience.
After three years of fellowship training, our program educates our trainees both in the application of clinical gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition as well as clinical and/or basic science research. Our goal is to develop a well rounded pediatric gastroenterologist who will be an excellent diagnostician and a superb endoscopist, with a strong commitment toward education and research.
