  1. Resource Description
    Penn-CHOP Center for Digestive, Liver and Pancreatic Medicine Center was established based upon a rich history and tradition of interaction, collaboration and productivity between Penn GI and CHOP GI spanning back to the 1980s. It is truly unique in the country. The overall mission of the Joint Center is transitional medicine, helping adolescents take the step from Pediatric care to Adult care. Our goal is to establish joint clinics, where physicians from CHOP and Penn meet jointly with transition age patients to discuss medical histories and future treatment options. With the help of clinical coordinators, we make the transition process seamless for patients and their families. The transitional medicine focus of the Joint Center has great emphasis in research and in education. Research integrates basic, translational and clinical approaches, and has achieved success through the garnering of new interdisciplinary NIH grants. There is a deep commitment to the training and education of the next generation of leaders - students, residents and fellows. The integrated programs in the Joint Center include the following diseases: 1) Inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease) 2) Medical Genetics/Liver disease (inherited predisposition to benign and malignant digestive disorders and diseases) 3) Autoimmune diseases (eosinophilic esophagitis, celiac sprue) Nutrition
