Gastroenterology is a discipline that deals with the diagnosis and conditions of the digestive system. It is also used to study normal functions and disorders of the esophagus, liver, small intestines, the colon and the rectum, the pancreas, bile ducts, and hepatitis. It requires an in-depth understanding of gastrointestinal organ normal activity (physiology) including material passage through the stomach and intestine, ingestion and absorption of nutrients through the bloodstream, the system’s elimination of waste, and its role as a digestive organ. In a nutshell, the study of gastroenterology includes both the natural operation and disorders of the digestive processes.
