UVA Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology is nationally recognized for excellence in clinical care, and has made a perennial appearance on U.S. News and World Report’s list of top programs since 1998.

The division fosters an interdisciplinary approach to patient care and offers integrated services for a complete range of digestive disorders. Patients have access to novel therapies, such as fecal tissue transplant, and to experimental drugs through the division’s extensive clinical trials program.

The division continues to broaden its clinical services and expand its basic science program, while remaining deeply committed to its educational mission. We invite you to explore our website to learn more. View our 2014 annual report for a more in-depth look at the division's recent activities.
