Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology

by Kelley Chuang, MD

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis, and management of conditions affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, rectum, and annexed glands (pancreas, gallbladder and biliary ducts, and liver).

For this course, the medical student should be familiar with the anatomy, embryology, and physiology of the GI tract; and the basics of inflammation and pathophysiology of neoplastic growth. Broadly speaking, pathologies of the GI tract can be grouped into one of three categories: inflammatory and infectious, congenital, and neoplastic. Each category is more prevalent in different age groups owing to their pathophysiology. For example, congenital abnormalities are common in newborns and children, whereas neoplastic conditions are more frequent in individuals > 50 years of age.

GI symptoms are among the most common complaints in the ER and outpatient care settings for both children and adults alike. A competent physician should be aware of the most prevalent GI illnesses in their area of practice. Moreover, they should be able to differentiate between conditions that constitute an emergency and those that can be managed in an outpatient setting.
