Brian Bosworth

Dr. Bosworth received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1995 where he graduated magna cum laude and wrote a thesis entitled "The Public Perception of Doctors in the Early Roman Empire. He was awarded his medical doctorate from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1999 and performed cardiac transplant immunology research. He subsequently completed internship and residency training in Internal Medicine in 2002 at New York Presbyterian Hospital: Columbia-Presbyterian Center where he was Chief Medical Resident. He subsequently completed his Fellowship in Gastroenterology in 2006 at New York Presbyterian Hospital: Weill Cornell Center.

He joined the Gastroenterology Division as a faculty member in the Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at that time and has rapidly become a nationally recognized expert in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The majority of his responsibilities are caring for patients with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's disease. A large number clinical trials and investigator initiated studies are conducted at the Center, and he is either the Principal Investigator or co-investigator on all of them. He has published numerous articles, abstracts and book chapters.

Dr. Bosworth is the Director of the Gastroenterology Fellowship Program. Teaching and education are an important aspect of the mission of the New York Presbyterian Hospital, the Weill Cornell Medical College and the IBD Center itself. Dr. Bosworth is co-director of the GI pathophysiology for 2nd year medical students. He was also named Teacher of the Year by the Class of 2008. He currently sits on the Education Committee for both the American College of Gastroenterology as well as for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America.
