Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship

The field of Pediatric Gastroenterology is a broad one and New York Medical College and its affiliated hospital, The Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, offer a vast panorama of clinical and research opportunities. To optimize the educational experience, each fellow is encouraged to take an active role in conjunction with the program director in designing his own program.

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship adheres to the requirements for Pediatric Gastroenterology certification by the Gastroenterology Subboard of the American Board of Pediatrics, and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The goals of our three year program are to provide:

  • A base of scientific skills and expertise that will ultimately allow fellows to become independently functioning and funded investigators
  • Skills to provide expert clinical care for infants, children and adolescents with disorders of the digestive system
  • A solid knowledge base and skills to guide, instruct and teach others the fundamentals of GI function and clinical care
  • To build administrative and time management skills
