    1. 1. 1 GI Face Off: Issues Facing Small, Medium and Large Programs: The Large Program Perspective (n=12+ fellows) Jane E. Onken, MD, MHS, AGAF Duke University Medical Center
    2. 2. 2 Issues Facing Large Programs • Funding, funding, funding • Fellow salaries/fringes (~$250K per fellow) • Travel to meetings, posters, presentations, etc. • Cost of GTE • Identifying research projects and mentors for all fellows – spreading the wealth • Application process, logistics of interviewing dozens of applicants with core committee • Finding time to conduct semi-annual reviews, etc. • Ensuring “quietest” fellows do not get lost
    3. 3. 3 Our Approaches • Funding: • T32 training grant (3 slots) • VAMC (4 slots) • Industry/Endo (1-2 slots, variable year-to-year) • Hospital (4 slots) • AGA, ASGE, CCFA grants • Application process: • Interviews on Saturdays for General GI • Interviews based on faculty availability for Advanced positions (ERCP, EUS, Hepatology) • Protected time commitment from hospital for PD • Never underestimate the value of a great coordinator!!
