Another advantage the GI fellowship at California Pacific Medical Center is the opportunity to interact with a large number of consulting gastroenterologists with diverse backgrounds and interest. There are approximately 40 gastroenterologists, including pediatric gastroenterology, working at the medical center. California Pacific Medical Center has the busiest endoscopy units in northern California. This large pool of attending physicians provides exposure to a unique array of procedural and consultative viewpoints as the fellow develops his/her practice style. The fellow also interacts with a very active surgical service, including transplantation surgery and colon rectal surgery.
