Welcome to the website of the SUNY-Buffalo Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition.
Our division provides inpatient and outpatient consultations and performs a wide variety of gastroenterological procedures at two major affiliated hospitals, the Erie County Medical Center and the Western New York Veterans Administration Hospital. In addition, we see outpatients at the offices of UB|MD at the Dent Tower.
The Division teaches students in all four years of the medical school curriculum and trains Internal Medicine Residents in digestive diseases. We have a three-year fellowship program that provides clinical and research education for future specialists in digestive diseases and nutrition.
Our faculty members and fellows are engaged in innovative basic and clinical research in many areas of gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. We have weekly CME-accredited teaching conferences, Gastroenterology grand rounds, research seminars, and journal clubs that are open to interested practitioners in the Buffalo area as well as our own faculty, students, and staff.
I hope you will find the information in this website of interest to you. Please feel free to contact me if I can provide any additional details concerning our programs.
