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 fellowship.
