The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition participates in the extensive and diverse educational activities offered by the University of Minnesota Medical School.
Faculty members from all GI educational affiliates actively participate in the training of medical students and residents and GI fellows. Activities include mentoring and participation in core conferences and course work.
The division participates in all house staff training programs and student education programs. The second year GUT course is consistently highly rated. Not resting on our laurels, we are currently proceeding with a two-year revision of all of the divisional educational programs.
The ACGME-accredited fellowship training program is approved for 12 fellow positions. The three-year training program currently accepts three fellows per year. Participants receive six months to one year in mentored research training, with the remaining time in spent in the clinical settings.
Fellows rotate every three months at one the following Minneapolis/St. Paul sites: University of Minnesota, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Hennepin County Medical Center, and Regions Hospital.

The ERCP/EUS Advanced Fellowship Training Program offers an advanced pancreatic and biliary endoscopy fellowship, which is a one year program to train fellows who have completed three year GI fellowships in Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography and Endoscopic Ultrasound, and Deep small bowel enteroscopy, and related techniques. Two fellows are selected from a pool of national applicants. Fellows completing this program generally move to faculty positions as advanced therapeutic endoscopists at academic institutions around the USA, and other countries including Singapore, Costa Rica.
