GUILD Fellow’s Program

Submissions Are Closed


The fellow’s program consists of a breakfast session before the main program on each day of the GUILD conference. This is a unique opportunity for networking and mentoring with world-class faculty from diverse fields within gastroenterology and hepatology. This is also an opportunity to network with other fellows from all over the country. These sessions have a casual atmosphere with a fellow-directed agenda. Discussion topics have included career planning, the job search, job negotiations, and transitioning from trainee to attending.
