Job Description

Gastroenterologists are physicians who deal with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and associated organs – liver, biliary tract and pancreas. A great majority of their work involves endoscopic procedures. These specialists deal with acute and chronic conditions, which can be life-threatening. This is a relatively small-sized occupation.

Most gastroenterologists spend majority of their time in outpatient consultations; however, they also carryout procedures and spend time on hospital wards. Gastroscopy, colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy account for a large part of their procedural work, allowing the gastroenterologist to visualise pathology, obtain biopsies, and perform therapeutic interventions.
