The Gastroenterology Fellowship at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) is sponsored by The Lifetract Foundation.

The Lifetract Foundation in partnership with NorthShore's Division of Gastroenterology and the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine offers a fellowship training program in Clinical Gastroenterology providing a diverse clinical experience and research in the study and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. This unique program blends the academics of a university affiliated institution with the personalized experience of a community hospital.

The Division of Gastroenterology at NorthShore promotes excellence in academic training. The Lifetract Gastroenterology Fellowship program provides an emphasis on producing strong academic leaders who generate the new knowledge required to provide the best care for their patients.

During the three year fellowship program, directed by Eli D. Ehrenpreis, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, the fellow will participate in a variety of experiences.

Fellows will assess patients with a variety of gastrointestinal, pancreatobiliary, and hepatic diseases during inpatient and outpatient rotations at NorthShore University HealthSystem and University of Chicago Hospitals.

The fellow will be required to participate in a variety of conferences, seminars, lectures, journal clubs and pathology conferences within the Division of Gastroenterology.
