Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology

Division Head: Jean-Pierre Raufman, MD 

The Division of Gastroenterology provides diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver, including gastroesophageal reflux disease, hepatitis and inflammatory bowel disease. The Division has 11 full-time MD faculty, plus seven PhD faculty in the non-tenure track.

With a National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 Training grant; the novel University of Maryland & NIH GI/Liver Scholars Program; the development of new clinical programs, including one focused on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD); and state-of-the-art treatment facilities, including an endoscopy laboratory with a full range of cutting edge endoscopic diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, our division is poised to become one of the leading GI programs in the country.

Our GI training program has also been expanded, improving the quality of scholarly activity pursued by our fellows and increasing the number of fellowships available in this quickly growing field.
