Fellowship Program

Our main goal is to launch our Pediatric Gastroenterology fellows on a path to a successful career and enable them to lead and influence the next generation of physicians by providing them a well-rounded education and academic experience.


Overview

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology at the University of Florida is committed to training individuals to become independent and competent physicians capable of providing the highest level of care. The program is designed to ensure that fellows have a well-rounded training in clinical care, teaching, research, and quality improvement. Training takes place at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, with our outpatient clinic and endoscopy center located nearby. UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital is the only pediatric Level I trauma center in the area and is the major pediatric referral center in North Central Florida. The children’s hospital has 192 beds, free-standing pediatric emergency department, and boasts over 13 pediatric subspecialties in the department.

The University of Florida hosts a broad range of NIH-funded biomedical scientists and clinical researchers who benefit from robust institutional support. There is an abundance of research opportunities and possibilities for collaboration throughout the University. The University of Florida Pediatric GI division is ranked in the top Gastroenterology divisions in the country, by US News and World Report.
