Division & Institution
The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology is made of four faculty members, four nurse practitioners, and two registered nurses. We have a strong supportive staff. In the department there are several clinical research studies that are on-going by the faculty and fellows. Some areas of focus include inflammatory bowel disease, autonomic nervous system and its role in functional gastrointestinal disorders, and eosinophilic disorders.
Our program exists in the context of the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, which is in a phase of rapid expansion of its research effort and has reached the top dozen medical schools for NIH funding support in the last few years. Our program is based in the Department of Pediatrics, which has been numbered among the top ten such departments for NIH funding for the last decade. This department has 110 faculty based at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, which is among the top children’s hospitals in the United States, as named by U.S.News and World Report. Thus, the institutional setting of the program is one of balanced clinical and research excellence.
