Gastroenterology Fellowship Program
Welcome, and thank you for visiting!
|Michael Babich, MD, Program Director|
We are a fully accredited gastroenterology and hepatology training program, offering a three-year clinical fellowship track. We recruit our fellowship trainees exclusively through the NRMP Match, accepting three new fellows each year. We offer an exceptional training experience, with our graduates performing tremendously well on the ABIM subspecialty exam (100% pass rate among our last five years’ graduates).
Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), our main training site, has an international reputation for excellence and innovation in education, research, and patient care. AGH 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.)
AGH supports 19 residency and 16 fellowship programs, all with ACGME-accreditation and annually logs over 29,000 hospital admissions and over 68,000 emergency room visits.
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.
A 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.
Please explore the site and feel free to call me directly with any questions or comments.
