Gastroenterology Fellowship

Clinical exposure encompasses both primary and consultation inpatients, as well as endoscopic procedures. Training is provided in all procedural aspects of gastroenterology and liver disease, including diagnostic and therapeutic ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound. Busy outpatient clinics exist at both UNMC and VA. Fellows have a continuity clinic where they see patients with staff supervision. Fellows are also involved in staff clinics.

Areas of basic and clinical research include:

  • Ethanol effects on hepatocyte function
  • Clinical studies in transplantation hepatology
  • Clinical studies in gastrointestinal endoscopy
  • Clinical studies in hepatocellular cancer and its detection
  • Clinical studies in intestinal rehabilitation and short bowel syndrome
  • Mechanisms of fatty liver injury
  • Pancreatic regeneration
  • Therapy of Hepatitis C
  • Iron Metabolism
