Welcome to Queen's Gastroenterology

The Division of Gastroenterology at Queen’s University offers a nationally respected two-year residency program that prepares graduates for stimulating careers as independent consultants and academic physicians. 

Our residents benefit an outstanding educational experience.  The Gastroenterology program provides exposure to a wide diversity of cases and procedures while strongly supporting research at the same time.  The key strengths of our program include:

Size
Our program offers a collegial and supportive environment.  The small size of the program facilitates a close working relationship with faculty who are able to offer frequent formal and informal feedback.

Faculty
All faculty members are academic gastroenterologists, dedicated to both teaching and research.  They place a high priority on teaching residents.

Research
The program strongly encourages research and residents directly benefit from their access to the internationally-respected GIDRU. 

Cases
There is a good volume and mix of patients with both common and less common GI problems, enabling residents to achieve competence over the course of the program.

Queen’s Gastroenterology is fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and maintained this status during its most recent review in 2011.

Our program welcomes enquiries from prospective residents.  If you have any questions, we look forward to hearing from you.
