Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Gastroenterology Fellowship at UMass Chan - Baystate is a 3-year ACGME-accredited program that provides comprehensive training in all aspects of gastroenterology, including advanced endoscopy, hepatology, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastrointestinal motility.

Support—and Challenge

Our mission is to train gastroenterologists who are fully trained to work in either clinical or academic positions, and who are compassionate as well as competent.

The Baystate culture emphasizes the doctor-patient relationship, humanism, and professionalism. Our curriculum and our faculty will support—and challenge—you to become great physicians and leaders.

Diverse Pathology

Baystate Medical Center is the premier referral center in western Massachusetts—we have a large patient population with a diverse spectrum of GI disorders.

You will have ample exposure to gastrointestinal disorders in the inpatient as well as the outpatient settings.

Develop Additional Expertise

We believe it is important that you have the opportunity to tailor your training to your aptitude and interests.

All fellows receive excellent general training in gastroenterology. In addition, those with specific interests will have the opportunity to develop additional expertise in disciplines such as, advanced endoscopy, hepatology, inflammatory bowel disease, and natural orifice surgery.

Upon successful completion of our program, you will be well-positioned to take the gastroenterology certification of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
