Digestive Diseases Clinical Conference (DDCC)
The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology offers a weekly Digestive Diseases Clinical Conference. Pediatric GI fellows are invited to speak at this conference four times yearly. First and second year fellows, with the help of an attending, will pick a case and work in conjunction with Radiology and Pathology to present the case fully. After the presentation, fellows are expected to write up a case report to submit for publication to Digestive Diseases and Sciences.
Board Review Lecture Series
The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition participates in the annual Board Review Lecture Series for Stanford residents. Each year one month is designated as Pediatric GI month, and faculty and fellows are selected to present to the residents on five topics off of the ABP Subspecialty Board “Top Ten List” for the general pediatrics resident:
2. Chronic abdominal pain
3. Gastroesophageal reflux/recurrent vomiting
4. Gastrointestinal bleeding
5. Chronic diarrhea/toddlers diarrhea
6. Neonatal cholestasis/hyperbilirubinemia
9. Inflammatory bowel disease
10. Enteral and parenteral nutrition
Though the lectures are created with Pediatric residents in mind, Pediatric GI fellows are encouraged to attend.
