Visiting IBD Fellow Program
Apply for our Visiting IBD Fellow Program
Our Visiting IBD Fellow program accepts qualified gastroenterology fellows for a one-month, all-expenses-paid observation at a leading IBD center. This highly competitive fellow program offers you exposure in treating and managing IBD patients.
By participating, you will:
- Improve your IBD skills by following a standard curriculum designed by expert faculty with real-world experience.
- Be exposed to clinical practices employed at IBD Centers of Excellence.
- Share evidence-based and expert opinion-based approaches to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of IBD.
Programs are held at these leading IBD Centers* throughout the country:
- Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
- Cleveland Clinic Foundation
- Massachusetts General Crohn's & Colitis Center
- Mayo Clinic College of Medicine
- Mt. Sinai Medical Center
- University of California at San Francisco
- University of Chicago Medical Center
- University of North Carolina
- University of Pittsburgh
*Host centers subject to change.
The Visiting IBD Fellow program is designed for gastrointestinal (GI) fellows who express an interest in learning more about IBD—irrespective of their plans to be in private practice or stay in academics. Ideally, the program targets GI fellows who are at centers that do not have IBD-specific curricula or a sufficient volume of patients for training.
This highly-competitive program has limited space and is open to GI Fellows interested in either adult or pediatric IBD. The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America will pay for all of your program-related expenses, including travel, accommodations, and meals.. The 2012-2013 program has been funded by an educational grant from Janssen Biotech, Inc.
Participant selection criteria include the following:
- Candidates must be enrolled in an accredited fellowship training program within the U.S. at the time of application and at the time of scheduled rotation.
- Candidates employed by a participating host institution may apply and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but candidates from other programs will receive priority.
- Candidates should express a specific interest in IBD education for a future career (not necessarily IBD specialty or academics).
- Candidates should have the full support of their program director for time away from the candidate's home institution for the duration of the program.
The Visiting IBD Fellows represent the best and brightest applicants from the gastroenterology fellow community.
Congratulations to these physicians and their home institutions.
