Gastroenterology/Hepatology Fellowships

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

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?

Memphis is a truly incredible town with so much to offer! Catch dinner at the iconic Majestic Grille before taking in a Grizzlies NBA game at the FedEx Forum. Learn the history of Memphis music at Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Stax Records, and Sun Studio. Soak in the sun at Shelby Farms or the Big River Crossing. Enjoy shopping at our Bass Pro Shop, housed in the tenth-tallest pyramid in the world, then explore the nightlife on historic Beale Street.

Those are just a few reasons Memphis was named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 23 Best Places to Go in 2023. Our UT Health Science Center was also named the ninth safest college in America by

But most of all, Memphis is the healthcare hub of the Mid-South's large and diverse population.
