Personal Statement
Dr. George Christophi graduated Summa Cum Laude from Stockton University with a major in Molecular Chemistry and a minor in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. He participated in research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh. He completed a combined MD, PhD degree from Upstate University in Syracuse, New York, with a focus in immunology. He joined the Physician-Scientist Training Program at Washington University School of Medicine and completed his internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship in 2017. He also completed an NIH-funded post-doctoral fellowship in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, examining the role of the microbial metabolome in immune signaling pathways and intestinal epithelial repair, and published his findings in the journal Science. Dr. Christophi is committed to improve the care and quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Being personally diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease shaped his decision to become a gastroenterologist dedicated in caring for IBD patients. As a patient, he saw first-hand the comfort a knowledgeable and caring physician can offer; he wanted to emulate those qualities and strive to become the kind of physician he admired as a patient. In addition, to continue providing excellent, evidence-based care, he is leading several institutional quality improvement initiatives in inflammatory bowel disease, including preventive health maintenance, dietary interventions and effectiveness of novel therapies. Currently, he is the Director of Steward Center of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and an Associate Professor at the University of Central Florida. He sees patients throughout Brevard County in Florida including Rockledge, Viera, and Melbourne.
