Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology

Welcome to the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Colorado.

The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Colorado is a internationally renowned program that provides comprehensive resources for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the digestive tract, pancreas and liver.

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 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 of our division,” says Hugo R. Rosen, MD, Division Chief of Gastroenterology & Hepatology and Waterman Professor of Medicine and Immunology.  “With the addition of six new faculty members, it’s an exciting time as we enhance and create new programs, including inflammatory bowel disease, bariatric endoscopy, and high-resolution manometry.” Click here to read about the good news of our division.
