Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition Fellowship

Campus at Sunrise

Overview

The University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU SOM) offers a three-year fellowship training program in the field of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. We also offer a fourth-year pediatric transplant hepatology fellowship​.

The Program is within the Section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in the Department of Pediatrics at the CU SOM. Clinical training takes place at the Children's Hospital Colorado, conveniently located adjacent to the SOM, and our research training occurs throughout our world-class facilities within Anschutz Medical Campus. 

The Program Director is Dr. Cara L. Mack, Professor of Pediatrics and Calies Menard-Katcher, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics is the Associate Program Director. The Program has been continuously fully accredited in Pediatric Gastroenterology by the Residency Review Committee of ACGME since the specialty was first recognized by ACGME in December 1994 and is accredited through 2021 as part of the New Accreditation System (NAS). To better meet the needs of applicants, our pediatric gastroenterology fellowship training program participates in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP) and the Electronic Residency Application Service ( ERAS) program for fellowship applicants.

The overall goal of our T32 research training program is to provide a diverse group of post-doctoral trainees with an exceptional supervised training and mentoring experience, to allow them to develop or enhance their research skills, knowledge and grantsmanship in preparation for a successful pediatric gastroenterology/ hepatology-related research career.

Program Aims:

  • To prepare the fellow in acquiring comprehensive skills in the evaluation, management, and procedural interventions related to gastroenterology, hepatology and nutritional disorders. Fellows will be trained on patient safety, QI, and cost-effectiveness, necessary components for success as a subspecialist.
  • To train highly qualified fellows in clinical, translational or basic science research, and to inspire and prepare them for a future career as leaders in academic medicine and as physician scientists.
  • To teach fellows strategies to maintain wellness, build resilience and minimize burnout.
  • To establish a concrete career development plan for the fellow, in order to maximize the potential for success in their future academic position.

Diversity / Equity / Inclusion

Diversity

We are committed to creating a diverse environment for students, residents, fellows, and faculty. We believe that an environment of inclusiveness and respect promotes excellence and that a setting where diversity is valued leads to the training of physicians who are prepared to practice culturally effective medicine and meet the needs of the various populations we serve. Visit our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in PEM page for more.


Well-Being / Resilience

Be well

By embracing wellness and improving personal resiliency, physicians can reconnect with the meaning of their work and fend off stress. Reducing or eliminating burnout also has practical implications for the entire department such as improving patient safety, student advancement, and the overall campus environment.
