Gastroenterology Fellowship Program Director
John Ryan, MD
Thank you for your interest in the Sunrise GME Consortium Gastroenterology
Fellowship Program. This is an ACGME-accredited 3-year program based at
Southern Hills Hospital and MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas. We typically
accept 3 new fellows per year.
The program is community based with the opportunity for extensive systems-based
learning. Our faculty is comprised of graduates and previous faculty from
some of the premier universities in the country. Many have advanced training
in areas such as hepatology, therapeutic endoscopy and inflammatory bowel
disease. Our faculty members are actively involved in clinical research.
The city of Las Vegas is located in one of the fastest growing regions,
and one of the most underserved states in the country. This background
provides the setting for extensive experience in patient care. The facilities
at which the fellows rotate add to this experience by providing a diverse
patient population ranging from those with common GI ailments to those
who need advanced multidisciplinary care.
The mission of the program is to steadily improve the quality of care for
patients with complex digestive disorders within the region. Our goal
is to train physicians who are not only capable of providing this care,
but who are able to bring a depth of interest in the specialty that contributes
towards advancing the program's mission.
