Pediatric Neurogastroenterology and Motility Fellowship
Nationwide Children's Hospital offers a one-year Pediatric Neurogastroenterology and Motility Fellowship.
The Neurogastroenterology and Motility Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital's Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is accepting applications for their twelve month fellowship in pediatric neurogastroenterology and motility training.
The program is fully approved by the Graduate Medical Education Committee of Nationwide Children’s Hospital and fellows receive official certification upon completion of their training. Graduates from the program are currently directing motility centers and programs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Calgary and Montreal.
Fellowship trainees will attain extensive training in a number of techniques, some of which are unique to Nationwide Children’s Neurogastroenterology and Motility Center.
- Anorectal, antroduodenal, colonic, and esophageal manomety, using high resolution and traditional techniques
- 24-hour impedance pH monitoring (multi-channel intraluminal impedance pH monitoring)
- Botox for anal and pyloric sphincter
- Gastrointestinal neuromodulation, including gastric electrical stimulation, auricular neurostimulation, percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation and sacral nerve stimulation
- The only inpatient and intensive outpatient rumination program in the U.S.
- Anorectal biofeedback therapy
- Pelvic floor physiotherapy
Over 400 patients are referred to the center and 500 tests are conducted every year.
Candidates applying to this fellowship program will interview via teleconferencing. This alternative to in-person interviews is being undertaken due to precautions relating to the current global pandemic.
