Advanced Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional GI Disease

Advanced Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional GI Disease

The goal of the fellowship is to provide clinical and research training for the gastroenterologist to evaluate and manage complex motility and functional GI disorders.

GI motility and functional diseases constitute a significant portion of patients in GI and primary care clinical practice, but an increasingly specialized area of gastroenterology. The scope of training includes all areas pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with gastrointestinal motility and functional diseases, as well as clinical research pertaining to causation, epidemiology, diagnosis, prognosis and management of these diseases.

Applicants will be expected to have completed an ABIM-certified three-year training program in gastroenterology prior to beginning their advanced fellowship.

For those applying from outside the United States, completion of equivalent post-graduate training in gastroenterology is acceptable. Passage of Boards part I and II is required and completion of part III is strongly encouraged. This training program is focused to develop an expertise beyond what is assumed as part of a standard GI

How To Apply:

Please contact Dr. Christopher Vélez (the Associate Program Director for the advanced fellowship) at [email protected] if you meet the following criteria:

  1. For those candidates applying after completing US-based gastroenterology fellowship, they must be board eligible/board certified and be graduating gastroenterology fellowship no later than end of June 2024.
  2. For those senior fellows interested in training with us during GI fellowship, they must either be based in Greater Boston-area GI fellowships or be able to physically locate to Boston for substantive proportions of their fellowship year (at least the majority of the academic year).
  3. Candidates who do not meet either of the above criteria (for example, internal medicine residents seeking training before GI fellowship) unfortunately cannot be considered at this time.
