Gastroenterology Physician Jobs

About Gastroenterology Careers

A gastroenterologist is an internist who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive organs including the esophagus, stomach, bowels, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. This specialist treats conditions such as abdominal pain, ulcers, diarrhea, cancer, and jaundice and performs complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures using endoscopes to visualize internal organs.

Gastroenterology also includes the discipline of hepatology--the diagnosis and treatment of liver and biliary tract diseases. Additional areas of focus include nutrition and nutritional deficiencies as well as prevention and screening, particularly for colorectal cancer. Gastroenterology requires increasingly complex decision-making; mastery of a growing number of endoscopic techniques, both diagnostic and therapeutic; an understanding of the sensitivity, specificity, risk-benefit, and cost-benefit of a broad array of diagnostic techniques and therapeutic options; and knowledge of the increasingly complex science that underlies gastroenterological practice.

It is a procedure-intense specialty that requires some manual dexterity and the ability to solve problems analytically. Treatments and procedures performed by a gastroenterologist include but are not limited to: colonoscopies, ERCPs, EUSs, flexible sigmoidoscopies, liver biopsies, upper GI endoscopies, capsule endoscopies, and double balloon enteroscopies.

The patient and physician population is always aging. As current gastroenterologists prepare to retire, new physicians in this specialization need to take their place.

Median Salary: $348,000 per year

Projected Growth: 18% from 2014-2024

Tips

Time is of the essence when responding to contracts.
Do not waste time when it comes to negotiating, declining, or accepting a contract.
Having a clear idea of what you are wanting in a contract makes the processes easier.
Along with that, it is important to be open minded and lenient with some aspects due to the fact a contract may not be able to fit every single one of your qualifications.

The way you handle yourself may affect your contract.
