The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at Riley Hospital for Children has a fellowship opening for July 2024. Affiliated with Indiana University School of Medicine and located in Indianapolis our division is comprised of 27 faculty members with special interests and multidisciplinary programs in Aerodigestive Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Hepatology, Neurogastroenterology, Eosinophilic Disorders, Pancreatic Diseases, Nutrition, Intestinal Rehabilitation, Celiac Disease as well as general pediatric gastroenterology. Our division also sponsors a 4th year Transplant Hepatology Fellowship as well as a GI Psychology Fellowship. We utilize advance technologies and treatments including IBstim, Endoflip, Transnasal Endoscopy, Point of Care Intestinal Ultrasound among others. Fellows benefit from an excellent core faculty who are recognized both nationally and internationally. The three-year fellowship training program is ACGME-accredited and designed to provide a complete clinical experience in all areas of pediatric gastroenterology. Fellows gain the skills on which to build a career in patient care, research and teaching.

The fellowship is clinically intensive, and trainees become proficient in all procedures and protocols employed in the evaluation and management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas. Training primarily occurs at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health (Indianapolis, IN) and IU Health North Hospital (Carmel, IN). Fellows benefit from a statewide referral base with a large and diverse clinical volume, and a high faculty-to-fellow ratio in a collegial working environment. Academically, Indiana University School of Medicine fellowship graduates are skilled educators who seek new knowledge and who can teach others to do the same. Department-supported fellowship seminars provide cross-specialty competency and peer group development. Additionally, fellows have access to special academic opportunities during their training, which include but are not limited to, programs for master’s degrees in Clinical or Translational Research, and Public Health; Academy of Teaching Scholars Program; and a global health curriculum for clinical and research initiatives.

As the nation’s largest medical school, IUSM is committed to being an institution that not only reflects the diversity of the learners we teach and the patient populations we serve but also pursues the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion that inform academic excellence. We desire candidates who enhance our representational diversity and those whose work contributes to equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty. IUSM strives to take an anti-racist stance, regularly evaluating and updating policies, procedures, and practices to confer equitable opportunities for contribution and advancement for all community members. We invite individuals who will join us in our mission to advance racial equity to transform health and well-being for all throughout Indiana.
