Pediatric Gastroenterology

The Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition offers a two year residency in pediatric gastroenterology. Training is provided in the diagnosis and management of children with gastrointestinal, nutritional, hepato-biliary, and pancreatic disorders. The program integrates both inpatient and outpatient exposure along with GI diagnostic procedures, including upper and lower endoscopies, liver biopsy, esophageal pH recording and manometry. Clinical, research and academic rounds occur in conjunction with the Departments of Surgery, Radiology and Pathology at the Montreal Children's Hospital and with the adult GI training program at McGill University. Eighteen months of the program are devoted to clinical training, including nutrition, three month rotations in adult gastroenterology and adult hepatology, as well as opportunity for additional exposure in pediatric gastroenterology at Hôpital Ste-Justine. The remaining 6 months are tailored to individual trainees' needs and may include electives in radiology, pathology, motility, advanced endoscopy, McGill graduate courses in epidemiology, and clinical research. Candidates electing to do a third year of training may go on to develop their expertise in a focused area of pediatric gastroenterology, including a mandatory research component. The Division has an active growing clinical research program in the area of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in the pediatric population.
