Virtually every medical center in the country has a web page and within that page gastroenterology educational topics can often be found. To find a specific university medical center, go to the Search or Find panel of your web page and type in the university’s name. You can also telephone that university’s information desk and ask for their web site address. You may find general GI information for the public on a variety of disorders. You will usually also find that an institution will list their areas of GI research interest. Some patients are interested in participating in research projects. You can also try a non- profit organization site which often will know where specific research projects are occurring.
