Letter from the Program Directors
We are delighted you have taken the opportunity to visit our website, and we hope the information you find here will allow you to understand the philosophy and vision of our fellowship program and division.
A major goal of the division is to educate and train the next generation of leaders in digestive and liver diseases. Our fellowship program is highly competitive and trains expert clinicians as well as physician-scientists with protected time for research. Given the relatively small size of our program and abundant time for electives and research, we are able to tailor the curriculum to support each fellow’s interest.
Finally, our division and fellowship programs are highly committed to ensuring continued diversity, equity and inclusion among its members. This is evident by our highly diverse faculty and fellows with respect to gender, race/ethnicity, cultural background and religion. We are able to achieve and sustain this diversity through a number of institutional efforts and support from the Cedars-Sinai Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, Cedars-Sinai/David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Women's Leadership Program, and the Learning to Lean In discussion group, among others.
We hope you enjoy exploring the fellowship website and feel free to contact us for any further information.
