What do you love about Stanford GI Fellowship?

I chose Stanford for its robust clinical training and research opportunities. The flexible curriculum allows me to tailor my training to my interests. The friendly atmosphere, approachable attendings, and camaraderie among fellows stand out. I appreciate the ample time to develop my academic and clinical interests. Living in the Bay Area is a delightful experience, with constant warm weather, and abundant outdoor activities at my doorstep.

What do you love about Stanford GI Fellowship?

There are many reasons why I chose to complete my gastroenterology fellowship at Stanford. The program is incredibly flexible and the ‘front loaded’ model provides you with the opportunity to use the second two years of fellowship to create your own academic path within gastroenterology. Fellows are able to identify an area of interest that excites them and pursue independent research, a master’s degree or audit Stanford courses to help gain the tools required to pursue it. Regardless of what you choose, program leadership is incredibly supportive, and the mentorship is unparalleled. Additionally, the ability to rotate at three hospitals allows you to work with a diverse patient population and to learn how other hospital systems function. Finally, the people at Stanford from the attending physicians, the nurses, endoscopy technicians and my co-fellows, are incredibly supportive and down-to-earth which makes a busy workday that might lighter!
