Advanced Training in IBD Sub-Fellowship

The Advanced Training in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) sub-fellowship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a six month intensive educational experience in IBD and is incorporated into the third year of Gastroenterology (GI) Fellowship. During this six month period, the fellow received both clinical and research responsibilities. Clinical time is split between outpatient IBD clinics, multi-disciplinary clinics/didactics with pediatrics and colorectal surgery and endoscopic time focusing on IBD. Below is a description of each clinical experience:

  • IBD Specialty Clinic: Train with IBD specialists on the management of IBD patients.
  • Endoscopy: Focus on the endoscopic evaluation of IBD patients including capsule endoscopy chromoendoscopy and endoscopic management of post surgical patients.
  • Pediatric GI Clinic: Train with pediatric gastroenterologists to learn evaluation and management of pediatric IBD in order to aid with transition to adult care.
  • Colorectal Surgery Clinic: Train with colorectal surgeons to help manage the surgical aspects of IBD including pre, and post-op care.
  • Pathology Clinic: The fellow will work with GI pathologists to recognize the pathologic features and complications of IBD.
  • Radiology: The fellow will work with abdominal GI radiologists to learn aspects of imaging interpretation in IBD.
  • OR Experience: The fellow will follow some patients into the OR to better understand surgical management of IBD.
