Dear Fellowship Candidate,


At Scripps, we provide outstanding training for physicians in gastroenterology and hepatology. Our goal is to graduate fellows who are superb clinicians and scientists; maintain the highest ethical, humanistic and professional principles; and are prepared for life-long learning, independent and critical thinking and constant self-improvement. Our graduates have proven themselves as superior teachers for patients, colleagues and trainees at every level. Academic scholarship is a critical part of our program, which has produced many outstanding clinical scientists.


To reach these goals, we have developed an excellent gastroenterology and hepatology faculty. We have a team of accomplished advanced endoscopists and offer a full range of services, including therapeutic ERCP, diagnostic and therapeutic EUS, capsule endoscopy, mucosal ablation and cryotherapy. Our staff has a worldwide reputation, and we support a robust liver transplant service. Scripps Clinic is a busy referral center, from around the region and the world, and the depth and breadth of our patient population is excellent.


I am honored to be the program director for the Scripps Clinic and Scripps Green Hospital Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship Program. Like our other faculty, I take great pleasure in coming to work each day and supporting our fellows with their training and research. Each year, we set lofty goals for ourselves, and each year we surpass them.
