Gastroenterology/Hepatology Fellowships

Gastroenterology
3-Year ACGME-accredited Fellowship

Transplant Hepatology
1-Year ACGME-accredited Fellowship
Hepatology
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?

riverboat on the Mississippi RiverMemphis is a city like no other. Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River, Memphis is where starving actor Danny Thomas built a children’s hospital (St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has helped increase the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%); Fred Smith started a small delivery service (FedEx now generates $60 billion dollars a year); the King of Rock ‘n Roll chose to live (Elvis’ Graceland sees 600,000+ visitors each year); and where you’ll find USA Today’s most iconic street (Beale Street has attracted fans from all over the world since the 1860s).

More city points of pride:

Memphis has been the inspiration for over 1,000 songs. We’re pretty proud of our town and think once you experience Memphis, you will be, too.
