Our training program offers an exciting opportunity for fellows to acquire a very strong, comprehensive foundation in all aspects of state-of-the-art Gastroenterology, including consultative gastroenterology and hepatology, procedures, and clinical research. Opportunities exist for electives and research with the faculty. Our three-year program is designed to prepare fellows to become top-notch physicians in the career path of Gastroenterology, whether it be academic medicine or clinical practice.
The Gastroenterology Fellowship Program is a centerpiece of the Division of Internal Medicine. We maintain the highest standards in everything we do and share with our fellows the joys and challenges of professional life. Our location gives the added advantage of continuously knowing the current affairs of the country.
The mission of the Fellowship Program is to train and foster the development of future leaders in academic gastroenterology, serve the minority population of various gastrointestinal diseases and to train future generations of gastroenterologists who will not only be skilled in the procedural aspects of the specialty but also have a strong base in the cognitive aspects of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.
Gastroenterology encompasses the evaluation and treatment of
patients with disorders of
the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, biliary tract, and liver. It
includes disorders of organs
within the abdominal cavity and requires knowledge of the
gastrointestinal disorders in other organ systems, such as the skin.
include knowledge of nutrition and nutritional deficiencies, and
screening and revention,
particularly for colorectal cancer.

The Division of Gastroenterology will be using ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) to select interview candidates for the upcoming match. Interviews will be held from January through March.
Following an internal ranking of qualified candidates, we will be
using the Specialties Matching Service (SMS) offered through the
National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to match candidates to
our fellowship class. We look forward to greeting our new fellows in
July. If you need further information of the Fellowship Program, you
