A gastroenterologist has a particular interest in diseases of the digestive tract. To become proficient in the treatment and management of these conditions, a gastroenterologist must undergo training in both internal medicine and advanced training in problems of the digestive tract.

 

Training:

 

A gastroenterologist must first complete a 4-year college degree followed by 4 years of medical school at which time they receive a medical degree. The next step is a 3-year residency in internal medicine. At that time a physician may elect to continue on to a specialty in gastroenterology.

 

A gastroenterology fellowship is 2 to 3 years during which a physician learns to evaluate and manage digestive diseases. This training encompasses conditions that may be seen in an office or in a hospital setting and instruction in how to perform diagnostic endoscopy procedures, such as colonoscopy. In all, a gastroenterologist has undergone a minimum of 13 years of formal classroom education and practical training before becoming a certified gastroenterologist.

Anorectal conditions

 

Hemorrhoids

 

Colonic neoplasms

 

Cancer

 

Polyps

 

Diverticulosis

 

Esophageal reflux

 

Gastritis

 

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

 

Hepatitis

 

Hiatal Hernia

 

Inflammatory bowel disease
