Gastroenterology: Resident / Student Reading List

This list is made for Internal Medicine residents and medical students rotating through Gastroenterology. The topics listed below are intended to cover common consult scenarios you will encounter during your rotation either as an inpatient or outpatient consultation.

We recommend you read consensus guidelines to gain an understanding of the basics before you read any clinical trials. Some of the guidelines are outdated so you may want to supplement your reading with a useful resource such as UpToDate.
