Ameen Patel

Dr. Darin Treleaven

The role of the External Program Ombudsperson is to offer confidential, informal, and independent information and advice; as well as, provide intervention and referrals. The Ombudsperson acts as an advocate for Gastroenterology residents on equity and fairness. All matters dealt with are held in strictest confidence.

  1. The Ombudsperson is a member of the Department of Medicine who does not have an administrative role in the Residency Program. Dr. Darin Treleaven is the Ombudsperson for the Adult Gastroenterology Residency Training Program.
  2. The function of the Ombudsperson is to be available to the residents to discuss any problems either personal or professional that the resident may have. The Ombudsperson can offer advice and assistance, and if appropriate and with the resident's permission, act on the resident's behalf in the resolution of those problems
