The GI Motility Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota is designed to offer you advanced training in the science and practice of gastrointestinal motility. It is intended for physicians planning a career in gastroenterology in an academic setting, who have a major subspecialty interest in gastroenterology with a focus on motility disorders of the digestive tract.

Supervised by experienced physicians, this one-year fellowship provides hands-on experience in the comprehensive management of patients with all gastrointestinal motility disorders and the conduct of gastrointestinal motility tests.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Clinical training in GI Motility at an outpatient motility clinic and inpatient consultations for patients with suspected motility disorders.
  • Laboratory training in clinical laboratories involved in the assessment of motility disorders, including opportunities to learn research-based techniques for patient-oriented research. 
  • An opportunity to pursue research projects with one or more mentors in the GI Motility Interest Group as well as the opportunity to spend an additional, optional year in basic or applied research in GI motility. 
Motility fellows and faculty collaborate together in the hallway at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
