Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Pediatrics Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital is designed to train the next generation of premier academic pediatric gastroenterologists. As clinicians and researchers, our graduates exit fully equipped in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic, and nutritional diseases.

This fellowship is a competitive three-year program offered through the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. During the first year, under the supervision of members of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Division of Pediatric Hepatology, our fellows focus on outpatient and inpatient care and training. Our curriculum also includes procedural training and an in-depth didactic syllabus which can be tailored to a fellow’s chosen career path.

The second and third year of the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship emphasize research. During this period, fellows engage in basic, clinical, and translational scientific investigation with leading gastroenterology and hepatology experts, with close collaboration between pediatric and adult programs. This experience ensures our fellows graduate well positioned for successful academic and research careers.

For both our fellows and our patients, our faculty are fully committed to fostering an inclusive experience. We serve a remarkably diverse patient community throughout New York City. In everything we accomplish together, we strive to embrace the values of Icahn Mount Sinai.


During the first year of the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship, fellows are encouraged to select a scientific area of interest and a mentor. Our mentors are faculty members dedicated to providing fellows with the support they need to develop their own interests and expertise.

Faculty research interests currently include:

  • Clinical, basic, and translational research related to inflammatory bowel disease
  • Clinical, basic, and translational research examining both pediatric and adult liver disease and transplantation
  • Nutritional eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders
  • Novel drug clinical trials
  • Intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation

The second and third year of the fellowship is designed to allow ample protected time for research, while maintaining time for ongoing clinical activities. Fellows have consistently presented their research at annual national gastroenterology and hepatology conferences and successfully submitted research for publication.


Training for the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship primarily takes place at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Further outpatient training and clinical experiences typically occur at The Mount Sinai Hospital, as well as the Susan and Leonard Feinstein Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinical Center and the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute

Our practice follows a wide range of patients and sees more than 2,000 new pediatric patients annually. Under faculty member supervision, fellows treat patients during all three years of their training. Faculty-led training occurs daily during inpatient rounds and consults, endoscopic procedures, formal didactic lectures, and divisional conferences. Educational conferences include weekly clinical case discussions, journal club, Endoscopy Case Conference and Inflammatory Bowel Disease Conference, as well as monthly Pediatric Hepatology Lecture Series pathology and radiology reviews.
