Our Gastroenterology & Hepatology unit brings together a team of exceptionally talented physicians and bioscience investigators to provide advanced solutions to disorders of the digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, and intestines), pancreas, and liver.

Our major missions are to generate advances in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders, to train the next generation of experts in digestive diseases, and to optimize the digestive health of patients in Vermont, upstate New York and beyond.

  • Moses’ Study on Fecal Transplant Cure for Gl Disorders Featured in 7Days
    Clostridium difficile, commonly known as C. diff, affects nearly half a million Americans a year, and leads to several thousand fatalities, according to the CDC. This infection is difficult to treat, especially among those with an antibiotic-resistant strain, but Peter Moses, M.D., professor of medicine at the Larner College of Medicine and gastroenterologist at the UVM Medical Center, uses fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) as a solution.

Our gastroenterology fellowship program builds on a four-decade tradition of excellence. With a faculty-fellow ratio of over 2.5 to 1, high quality mentorship is a constant at all levels of our three-year training.


Conferences & Seminars

There are several structured clinical and research conferences which provide continued education throughout the year in areas such as pathophysiology, management, knowledge of radiology and pathologic interpretations, and basic research. These lectures represent an integral part of the educational curriculum.
