Professor Ronnie Fass is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Arizona. He is also Staff Gastroenterologist and Director of GI Motility Laboratories at the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System and the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center.

He studied medicine at the Ben-Gurion University in Beer Sheva, Israel. He trained in medicine at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center where he also served as chief resident. He then moved to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he completed his fellowship in GI. At that time he initiated esophageal studies using a computerized distension device (Barostat) under the mentorship of Professor Emeran Mayer. He trained in GI motility at UCLA and supplemented his experience with a rotation under Professor Michael Camilleri at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. After completion of his fellowship in GI, he moved back to the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System as a staff gastroenterologist, and established a physiology and GI motility lab.

Professor Fass is involved in studies assessing esophageal motility and sensation, with focus on non-cardiac chest pain and non-erosive reflux disease. Recently, his research has focused on brain-gut interactions.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
It appears that as a medical student I was already very intrigued by the wide variety of disease processes that the GI field encompasses.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Two teachers that influenced my career the most were Professor Emeran Mayer from UCLA and Professor Michael Camilleri from the Mayo Clinic.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
There are several. An example is the article by McDonald-Haile, et al. Gastroenterology 1994;107(1):61-9 assessing stress and its relationship to symptom perception.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
I am still working on that. It is too early to conclude.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Eating a large spicy meal just before a major presentation in front of hundreds of distinguished gastroenterologists.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To travel around the world in 80 days (I know some people in academia who have accomplished this goal already).
What is your greatest regret?
Getting into the stock market during the 80's.
How do you relax?
By writing a letter to the editor.
What is your favorite sport?
Hard to remember, but I think basketball.
What is your best place in the world?
Hiking in Alaska.
What is your favorite film?
"Dr. Zhivago" and "The Pink Panther".
