  • Fellowship in Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition

    The fellowship program at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Gastroenterology, Clinical Nutrition and Transplantation is comprehensive and the largest in Australia. It allows trainees access to all aspects of clinical care at a tertiary and quaternary level. We are a state centre for Liver Transplantation and the only National Center for Paediatric Multi-Visceral Transplantation. We also have a dedicated Intestinal Failure Program. In addition the department also provides a substantial service in IBD and CF for  Victoria and Tasmania.

    Fellowship rotations will include inpatient and outpatient care. We run a very busy inpatient consultative service and outpatient clinics [25 clinics a week covering Clinical Nutrition, Hepatology, Luminal gastroenterology, IBD, CF and Pancreatic diseases

    Fellows will have access to training in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy [1500-2000 per year], Capsule endoscopy, GI Motility and Fibroscan. There are weekly ward rounds for IBD, Liver transplant, Cystic Fibrosis and Clinical Nutrition. In addition to this we have a weekly CPC [including Journal club, Histopathology, Radiology and Clinical/Research].

    Instruction and teaching is provided by our consultant team [13 Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists] with twice weekly interactive sessions during and after hours that covers the curriculum provided by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
