I also have a long-standing interest in Medical Education and have been particularly involved in medical student, GI fellowship and program director education, the latter through the World Gastroenterology Organization and ACG supported Train-the-Trainers program, as well as the ACG young faculty program. I served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Gastroenterology and maintain an active role on editorial boards and manuscript reviewing.

I am happy to share my experiences and learning gained over the years in clinical research, education and medical publishing with potential mentees.

Raffals is a native of Indiana. In , she joined the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Division at Mayo Clinic, where she is a member of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease interest group. Her primary research interests include ileal pouch dysfunction and the interactions of gastrointestinal dysmotility, the intestinal bacterial community, and inflammatory bowel disease. She currently serves as the Program Director for the Gastroenterology fellowship program. Raffals enjoys spending her spare time with her husband Reeghan and two young daughters, ages 6 and 8.

Her hobbies include reading, exercising, cooking, and hiking. I am a full Professor of Medicine and my research interest has been in benign and malignant pancreatic disease and endoscopic ultrasound application to the pancreas.

I have been an active member of the American College of Gastroenterology serving on the Training committee as a member for 6 years, including as serving as its chairman until My career focus has been on education of GI fellows and medical residents.

I moved in the Midwest for my medical training: I am in charge of the inflammatory bowel disease clinic. While similar endeavors are usually undertaken in academic centers, the challenge of expanding advances in IBD care to the community has been rewarding.

I mostly do general gastroenterology, as well as motility work and run the motility lab at our clinic. It is a branch of the main hospital in Ohio. We do have fellows and residents here so I stay involved with education and some research, mostly clinical research. I would describe this practice as a blend of academic and clinical. This is close to where I grew up and my husband and I decided to return to Florida to be close to my parents.

I have 2 children- ages 11 and 13 now and so had to do the work-life balance or dance like I sometimes call it throughout my career. His academic interests include teaching students, residents and fellows in both geriatrics and Quality Improvement and Patient Safety and curriculum development in these topics.
