The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Colorado
is an internationally renowned program that provides comprehensive resources for
the diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the digestive tract, pancreas and
Our mission is to facilitate the development of an interdisciplinary approach
to patient care, education, and research programs in digestive and liver
disease. The Division is a robust academic unit, with 58 full-time faculty and
15 fellows in training who work at University of Colorado Denver, Denver
Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center and Denver Health Medical Center. The clinical
and research focus of the Division is on the following programmatic areas:
general gastroenterology, inflammatory bowel disease, advanced interventional
endoscopy, hepatology and liver transplantation, gastrointestinal oncology,
gastrointestinal motility and physiology.
The annual research support, derived from federal and industry sponsorship,
is approximately $4M. The Division has recently recruited faculty with interest
in nutrition, inflammatory bowel disease, advanced interventional endoscopy and
women's health issues.
The Division also participates intensively in the education and training of
undergraduate students, medical and graduate students, combined degree students,
medical residents and GI fellows. GI fellows are recruited from outstanding
medical residency programs, and the GI fellowship is supported through an NIH
T32 training grant, now in its third decade.
We are entering a transformative period in our division. We are pleased to
