Outpatient Clinic & Endoscopy Rotation

The Outpatient Clinic and Outpatient Endoscopy rotation at The University of Toledo Medical Center provides a unique opportunity for fellows in training to see patients referred to the clinic regarding specific issues related to gastrointestinal problems that often include complex cases, referrals from outside physicians, and second opinions regarding diagnosis and management. Working one-on-one with faculty in the Clinic provides close interaction between fellows and staff in the effective analysis of a very wide range of gastrointestinal problems, and the effective management and efficiency of operations related to outpatient practice. The effective use of symptomatic treatment, as well as specific treatment for structural pathological conditions is emphasized. Fellows will attend outpatient clinic and procedures. Fellows will be assigned 3-4 clinic days per week during this rotation including their half day per week continuity clinic and 1-1.5 days of endoscopy.
