N1 - Funding Information: The nature of additional training depends upon the type of career within IBD one chooses to pursue. Those considering such a career should first discuss their goals with their mentors or program directors in order to determine the path that best fits with their interests and background. One option is The Visiting IBD Fellow program sponsored by the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation (CCF). This intensified IBD educational experience, available during the second or third year of fellowship, is a one month elective sited at a leading IBD center that provides exposure to evidence- and opinion-based approaches by expert faculty practicing in high-volume programs . For many, this experience, adequate for added comfort in managing complicated disease, provides a wonderful opportunity to build relationships with mentors from other centers. Another option is the CCF Rising Educators Academics and Clinicians Helping IBD (REACH-IBD), the junior faculty and fellow membership arm of the CCF focused on networking, career development, education, and collaborative research. Moreover, the IBD Xcel program targets junior attending physicians within 5 years of completion of training for two-day workshops with IBD experts aimed at honing their clinical skills . All of these programs may also provide a preview of what is entailed by advanced training with the aim of helping young clinicians determine whether such training is something right for them.
