Medical Students

Description: Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition is a clinical elective offered through Harvard Medical School (PD515M.7). Medical students from Harvard, as well as Exchange students from other Programs, are welcome to complete rotations on our Inpatient, Consult, Hepatology, and Nutrition Services. Students will be introduced to the broad range of gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases encountered in infants, children, and adolescents. Students will have an opportunity to participate in the management of patients admitted to our Inpatient and Hepatology Services, as well as ambulatory patients seen in a number of subspecialty clinics. The exact schedule can be tailored to the specific interests of the student. Over the course of the elective, the student will work closely with several attending physicians. Students will be encouraged observe endoscopic and motility procedures. An extensive conference schedule, emphasizing pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and evidence-based management of gastrointestinal diseases, is available for the student.

More Information/How to Apply: Students should contact the Registrar's Office at Harvard Medical School regarding relevant application requirements and fees. The link is here.

Rotating Residents and Fellows from ACME-Accredited Programs

If you are interested in participating as either an observer or a rotator on our GI Inpatient and/or Consult services, please provide the following materials:

  • Curriculum vitae or resume
  • Letter of reference
  • A short paragraph describing your interest in Gastroenterology, Nutrition and Hepatology and identifying your educational goals for this elective

These materials should be submitted electronically to Benjamin Paret, Mr. Paret can also be reached at (617) 919-2552 if you have any questions or special requests.


Residents outside of the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics (BCPR) can complete elective rotations on our Inpatient, Consult, and Ambulatory Programs as Rotators.

Rotating Residents:
Rotators are residents or fellows from training programs based outside of Boston Children's Hospital. They participate in clinical care (e.g. seeing patients and presenting the cases to a preceptor) as affiliating house staff.

Resident/Fellow applicants from Massachusetts-based training programs must contact Benjamin Paret at (617) 919-2552 or, at least three months ahead of the date they would like to begin the rotation to obtain necessary Affiliating House Staff application packet. The application consists of the following:

  • Copy of Massachusetts Limited License OR copy of full license and license application
  • Proof of malpractice insurance
  • Curriculum Vitae or Resume
  • Board Certificate (if applicable)
  • ECFMG certificate (if applicable)
  • Attestation Form (will be sent to you as part of the application packet)

In addition to completing the Affiliating House Staff application packet, rotating residents from training programs located outside of Massachusetts must obtain a Massachusetts Limited License and therefore should contact Benjamin Paret. Limited License applications must be turned in to the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine AT LEAST 8 WEEKS IN ADVANCE of start date. i.e. If you plan on starting on September 1st, your application MUST REACH the Board on July 1st. For more information on limited license applications, please visit: Massachusetts Board of Registration of Medicine.

An affiliation and training program agreement must be in place for both in and out-of-state rotators. Applicants should contact Benjamin Paret early in the application process to either verify that the appropriate agreements are in place, or to start the process to put them in place prior to beginning the clinical rotation. Completion of agreements can take up to 2 months, therefore please plan accordingly.

At this time, the GI service is no longer able to offer general observerships. If you would like to work directly with a faculty member in our program, please reach out to the faculty member directly.
