    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.

    Fellows will have access to training in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy [1500-2000 per year], Capsule endoscopy, GI Motility and Fibroscan.
