The gastroenterology fellowship program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Morningside/West is a three-year course of study that provides comprehensive training in all fields of gastroenterology and hepatology.  Equal emphasis is placed on training fellows for the care of patients in both an inpatient and outpatient setting.  In the first year of training, our fellows are heavily immersed in the inpatient consultative service at each of the three teaching hospitals. Employing a 3 plus 1 model, each fellow spends three intensive weeks of inpatient consult service followed by a dedicated week for outpatient continuity clinics, procedures and research. During the second and third year of training, fellows rotate through subspecialty modules in inflammatory bowel disease, motility, clinical nutrition, hepatobiliary, advanced endoscopic procedures, and transplant hepatology rotations.  During the second and third years, ample time is also allotted for elective training and academic research to allow for an individualized curriculum tailored to meet the needs of each individual trainees career goals.
