Fellowship Life

Chief Fellow's Message

We are very happy you are considering IU School of Medicine for your Gastroenterology and Hepatology fellowship training! Our fellowship is anchored by a strong clinical experience with exposure to great pathology, natural progression of disease, and niche subspecialties such as transplant, IBD, and advanced endoscopy. We are lucky to train in an environment that hosts many of the field’s most notable experts, all of whom work directly with fellows and encourage their participation and personal growth. We are also blessed with leaders and mentors who support research and educational endeavors.

Our program director, Dr. Nabil Fayad, and program coordinator, Anna Papazian, are dedicated to the fellows and their overall training experience. They have prioritized wellness, an initiative that has only grown stronger as we transition out of the COVID era, and work diligently to represent the fellows’ interests within the division. Our fellows are challenged to be the very best version of themselves and graduate with skills that enable them to achieve all the clinical, educational, and research success they desire.
