Gastroenterology/Hepatology Research Fellowship

Gastroenterology/Hepatology Research Fellowship

The Duke Clinical Research Institute Gastroenterology/Hepatology Research Fellowship offers an opportunity to complete graduate coursework in research while conducting research with mentorship from the DCRI faculty. DCRI faculty members have active research programs in viral hepatitis, NAFLD, hepatocellular carcinoma, drug induced liver injury, liver transplantation, colorectal cancer screening, and inflammatory bowel disease. These programs include a wide range of experiences in translational research, biosignatures, clinical trials, outcomes research, and economic analyses.

  • Gastroenterology/Hepatology research fellows from both the Duke Gastroenterology Fellowship program and from outside institutions spend 2 years in the Gastroenterology/Hepatology Research Fellowship to comprehensively develop their clinical research skills and background.
  • All research fellows are encouraged and supported to obtain didactic training in clinical research methodology, biostatistics, and decision analyses through degree programs at the Duke University School of Medicine or at the University of North Carolina School of Public Health. Fellows with a graduate degree prior to coming to the DCRI will develop a curricular plan with the fellowship director.
  • Each research fellow has a primary research mentor from the DCRI Gastroenterology/Hepatology Faculty. The faculty member will guide the fellow’s overall research program and work directly with them on research projects. Faculty members meet with fellows at least weekly.
