Navigating a Successful Course through GI Fellowship | July 2020
Released: July 2020
Time: 1 hour 13 minutes
Well over a century ago, William Osler emphasized the point to trainees that “Medicine is learned by the bedside and not in the classroom. Let not your conceptions of disease come from words heard in the lecture room or read from the book. See, and then reason and compare and control. But see first.”

As GI training programs are preparing for their annual transition for incoming first-year-fellows and the progression of current fellows to 2nd or 3rd year of fellowship. New fellows must make the transition from a generalist to a specialist, entering the world of learning the art of effective consultation, care for patients in a specialty clinic under close scrutiny and high expectations of both patients and attending physicians, supervise busy inpatient specialty ward services, and assimilate volumes of gastroenterology text. If all of this was not overwhelming enough, GI Fellows continue their 3-year training journey by becoming skilled in the new and ever-expanding world of endoscopy. How in the world does one prepare for and effectively navigate these training experiences and requirements?

Listen to a panel of current GI Fellows, hosted by GI Fellowship Program Director, Dr. Keith Obstein, who will facilitate observations made, lessons learned, and tips toward how to be successful throughout your GI Fellowship.
