At Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, three-year fellowships in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition are offered in collaboration with Emory University School of Medicine to promising physicians who have completed U.S. or Canadian postgraduate pediatric residency programs.
The first year of the Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Fellowship Program is devoted entirely to inpatient and outpatient clinical duties. The second and third years focus primarily on research.
Responsibilities and expectations
The responsibilities of fellowship trainees differ markedly from pediatric residents, who are responsible for writing orders and directly managing the patients. Fellows within this program will serve in a consulting and attending role, similar to how they will when they join the faculty of a medical school.
During the three years of fellowship training, candidates receive formal and informal training on appropriate billing and coding to facilitate transition to the faculty level and provide an understanding of the business of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.
Medline CD-ROM searches can be performed through Emory University’s medical library from the computers in the gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition section offices. In addition, fellows have access to the extensive Emory University library facilities, including the Emory University Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library.
A well-supplied library is also available at Children's Egleston Hospital, with access to Medline services. In the gastroenterology section, there is a wide selection of major gastroenterology, hepatology, liver transplant and nutrition pediatric journals.
