Dr. Ramzan completed four years of gastroenterology training from Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, which included one year of formal training in the field of gastrointestinal motility. Thereafter, he completed one year of dedicated training in Advanced/Interventional Endoscopy at Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago. Current research interests include evaluating predictors of early mortality in GI tumors and exploring utility of novel endoscopic and therapeutic options in these patients.
