About the Program

Welcome to the GI Fellowship at the University of Cincinnati. We have a long tradition of training the future academic leaders of gastroenterology and hepatology. We are proud to strengthen and continue this mission.

Our program has an impressive historic past, dating back to the 1930s, when it was founded by the world renowned hepatologist Dr. Leon Schiff. Dr. Schiff is considered by many to be the Father of modern day Hepatology. We continue this strong tradition by educating and training those who will become the next generation of academic physician leaders.

Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at the University of Cincinnati offers a comprehensive three-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited fellowship in Gastroenterology. Additionally, we are proud to offer Dual certification training in transplant hepatology during three years of gastroenterology fellowship (total of three years for completion of gastroenterology and transplant hepatology fellowship training)

At the University of Cincinnati, our fellowship program is designed to provide fellows with a robust educational experience that encompasses clinical care, research, and professional development. With access to world-class faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and a diverse patient population, fellows have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a wide range of gastroenterological and hepatological conditions.

Our curriculum is structured to ensure that fellows receive rigorous training in all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology, including advanced endoscopy, liver transplantation, inflammatory bowel disease, motility disorders, and nutrition. Through a combination of clinical rotations, didactic lectures, research opportunities, and mentorship, fellows develop the skills and expertise necessary to excel in their careers.

Our ethos prioritizes mentorship, collaboration, and innovation, empowering fellows to become leaders in gastroenterology. We are dedicated to provide comprehensive training, personalized guidance, and opportunities for growth, ensuring that each fellow emerges as a proficient, compassionate, and well-rounded gastroenterologist prepared to make a meaningful impact in the field. Core program values include diversity, equity, and inclusion.
