About the Program

We recruit trainees to our fully accredited gastroenterology and hepatology training program exclusively through the NRMP.  We offer an exceptional training experience, and our graduates perform tremendously well on the ABIM subspecialty exam (100% pass rate for last 3 years’ graduates).

Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), our main training site, has an international reputation for excellence and innovation in education, research, and patient care. It is a national leader in cardiovascular, cancer, neuroscience, and orthopaedic and rehabilitation care and offers a wide array of medical and surgical specialties including a Level 1 trauma center with aeromedical service (LifeFlight).

Integration with a broad range of specialists and support services, including integrated medicine specialists and acupuncturists, nutritionists and dieticians, bariatric and colorectal surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, lends to a training experience that is thorough and enlightened, and truly facilitates the competency of system-based practice. State-of-the-art diagnostic and endoscopic equipment, highly trained and specialized therapeutics faculty, and an active liver transplantation program all facilitate our goal of producing “cutting edge” gastroenterologists.

 Our very active program of scholastic activity and clinical research ensures all our fellows complete their training as published authors, as well as thought-leading clinicians. Our graduates have pursued highly successful careers in both private and academic arenas, in all parts of the country.
