Two doctors consult with a patient

In 2001, the Yale Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program was specifically formed to address the challenges faced by patients with complex, lifelong gastrointestinal, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

We provide care to you using a team-based approach with a gastroenterologist, physician assistant, and a team of nurses and medical assistants who share the responsibilities of your medical care. Following evidence-based guidelines, your IBD team will work closely together to plan and coordinate your care. You will have the opportunity to meet each of your IBD team members during one of your visits.

Our program focuses on three components: Clinical Services, Patient Education, and Research.
