The gastroenterology fellowship program provides exposure to a broad spectrum of disorders in children as a result of Le Bonheur's multistate catchment area. Fellows provide consultations throughout Le Bonheur and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, providing endoscopies and other procedures as indicated.

In addition to general clinics, fellows participate in aerodigestive, eosinophilic, esophagitis, liver/liver transplant, inflammatory bowel and intestinal rehabilitation clinics, which bring together multidisciplinary specialists to manage children with complex disorders. Our goal is to help fellows develop the skills that complement their interests and put them on the path to success.
