The Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education offers fellowships in cardiovascular disease, geriatrics and gastroenterology. The gastroenterology fellowship enhances the care of patients in Northeast Pennsylvania who have gastrointestinal disorders, as well as strengthens the local health care workforce in the specialty field. Over the course of three years, fellows gain valuable experience in inpatient and outpatient gastroenterology and hepatology, including the mastery of procedural skills. Fellows, under the guidance of the program director, are immersed in the community through The Wright Center for Community Health’s eight regional practices that serve Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties.
