Wayne State University School of Medicine

Welcome

The G.I. Division at Wayne State University is dedicated to excellence in patient care and to the provision of superb training to G.I. fellows, medical residents and medical students. The faculty is extraordinarily accessible and very involved in individualized mentorship of each trainee. The clinical exposure in the program covers the gamut of GI related diseases and utilizing state of the art technology. Trainees have the opportunity to present their research work at both national and international meetings culminating in first authorship of published articles. The training program is clearly intensive and rewarding as reflected in a 100 percent pass rate on the G.I. Boards. Warm and lifelong relations are a hallmark of the devotion established between trainees and faculty during the three year training period.
