GI Team Welcomes New Fellows for 2021

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles offers multiple advanced training opportunities in pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology.

Five graduates from prestigious institutions across North America will join the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in July as trainees.

The fellows will take part in four different training programs: Pediatric Gastroenterology, Liver Transplant Hepatology, Advanced Gastroenterology Nutrition, and Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders.

Both the gastroenterology and transplant hepatology fellowships are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The GI motility and nutrition fellowships are one-year, non-ACGME-accredited programs.
