This included general gastroenterology and biliary endoscopy training. Previously he finished internal medicine training in 2008 at Mercy Catholic Medical Center in Philadelphia during which he received Best Resident of the Year award twice.

He has published various articles in leading gastroenterology journals as a first author. He has also authored a book chapter in a medical text book and has presented abstracts in national meetings during his research and training years.
