Gastroenterology/Hepatology Fellowships

3-Year ACGME-accredited Fellowship
Transplant Hepatology
1-Year ACGME-accredited Fellowship
1-Year Non-Standard Fellowship

We plan to offer 4 first year GI fellowship positions starting on July 1, 2018.

Our fellowship training programs in gastroenterology and hepatology are comprised of three basic components: a 20 month core curriculum, 3-4 months of research, and 12 months of elective.

The core curriculum is uniform for all fellows and includes hospital-based consultative gastroenterology and hepatology training, two longitudinal general GI clinics (for the entire 3 years), and a series of conferences designed to augment the clinical training goals of the curriculum.

Three to four months of protected research time will be available during the training to all fellows. During this period, fellows will have little direct patient care responsibility. They will be expected to involve themselves with clinical or basic science research projects under the mentorship of faculty investigators.

Information for Prospective Applicants

Applicants may submit their applications through ERAS. These positions will be included in the National Residency Matching Program for the upcoming academic year.

Why Memphis?

A. Schwab's on Beale Street

Known as the "Birthplace of Rock 'n Roll," Memphis has always been a big city with a small town heart. It offers magnificent music (we're the home of Elvis, Stax, Justin Timberlake, and the Blues), fantastic food (we take our barbecue very, very seriously!), spectacular sports (Grizzlies, Redbirds, or Tigers anyone?), and colossal concerts (including Garth Brooks, Twenty One Pilots, and Bruno Mars and the Beale Street Music Festival) and all of this served with side of southern charm.

Learn what it's like to spend 36 hours in Memphis. It's where cool started.
