This is a three-year fellowship training program that is offered through Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies and the University of Florida. Our program is built upon the strengths of our dedicated academic and research faculty, exposure to wide range of patient diversity and complex clinical disease processes, experience with numerous endoscopic and non-endoscopic procedures, supportive hospital environment that has been recognized by US News and World Report Best Children’s Hospital and leader in pediatric care in Central Florida, and strong academic affiliation with University of Florida Department of Pediatrics, recognized as one of the top programs in the United States for medical education and research. Our program is fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee of ACGME, is managed by the Center for Pediatric Digestive Health and Nutrition, directed by Dr. Karoly Horvath. We participate in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) program.
Our goals are to prepare our fellows for a career in pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, with a strong emphasis on excellence in clinical care, teaching, and productive and independent research. We stress the importance of clinical pharmacology and biotechnology, as well as place a strong emphasis on the scientific basis of disease, evidence-based disease management, instituting best practices and quality improvement, and refining clinical judgment, teaching, and interpersonal skills. We work alongside the other strong academic programs at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, these include: Pediatric Residency, Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship, Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship, and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. Whether your long-term interests lie in academic medicine, clinical research, primary gastroenterology, or subspecialty in gastroenterology, you will be well prepared and have a strong foundation for your future.
