On the second Tuesday of each month, gastroenterology faculty and fellows attend the multidisciplinary pancreaticobiliary conference with colleagues from surgery, radiology, oncology, and pathology to discuss the diagnosis and management of pancreaticobiliary disease in a case-based format.
The lectures, presented by physicians from NYU Langone and other institutions, cover all areas of internal medicine.
We encourage all gastroenterology and hepatology faculty and fellows to attend. Simulation-based sessions focus not only on clinical knowledge in numerous areas—including colon cancer screening, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver disease—but also on optimizing professionalism, communication, and patient-centered care.
More than 20 clinical scenarios, including breaking bad news to patients and caregivers, utilizing shared decision making, advising patients about procedure complications, and demonstrating cultural sensitivity, are included. OSCE sessions for fellows are supervised by faculty, while faculty OSCEs are taped and utilized for self-assessment by each individual participant. Over a three-year repeating period, gastroenterology fellows and attending physicians discuss the core components of gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition, while touching on the elements of physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of gastrointestinal and liver disorders.
The Endoscopy Course, designed for first-year fellows, takes place in July and August. First-year fellows learn about endoscopy lab safety and the principles of infection control, as well as the basics of sedation, obtaining informed consent, and care of equipment.
Fellows also get hands-on experience in using endoscopic techniques and a review of endoscopic images and literature. During this time, senior fellows participate in a course on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound EUS techniques, as well as deep enteroscopy, ablative techniques, manometry, and pH-metry.
