Out of Programme Experience and Research
Gastroenterology in South Yorkshire offers ample and diverse research opportunities.
In Sheffield, the research fellowship programme has been established for over 10 years. Currently, 15 trainees have completed their clinical research fellowship and the majority have obtained a higher degree, MD or PhD during their time as research fellows. Research topics include
inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune hepatitis, small bowel and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, coeliac disease, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeding, irritable bowel syndrome and gastrointestinal bleeding.
