Gastroenterology Fellowship Overview

About The Program

The Gastroenterology Fellowship at the UT Tyler School of Medicine through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education will have a class of two fellows in training each year, with a total complement of six fellows by 2026. We offer an exceptional, diverse patient population with exposure to a mix of simple and complex patient/cases. Fellows will receive hands-on training with outstanding core and non-core faculty with state- of-the- art facilities equipped with the latest technology. Upon graduation, Fellows will be very competent and highly confident in their abilities to purse a successful academic or clinical career as a Gastroenterologist.

About the UT Tyler School Of Medicine

The UT Tyler School of Medicine is the region’s only academic medical center. The  school, in partnership with Ardent Health Services, has formed the UT Health East Texas Health System, a 10-hospital, 54-clinic health system providing quality care across the entire East Texas region. Our UT Tyler School of Medicine Gastroenterology Fellowship Program’s governing body, the Graduate Medical Education Committee at the school, provides oversight to these sponsored fellowship programs and has decades of experience in directing successful graduate medical education programs which continue to produce highly competent and accomplished graduates each year. Backed by the University of Texas System, the leadership at the school and UT Health East Texas are determined to provide astonishing medical education, health care delivery and innovative research in East Texas.

The UT Tyler School of Medicine’s Gastrointestinal Diseases Fellowship serves a diverse population based in East Texas and will welcome and encourage applications from residents from all backgrounds. An effort to maintain this diversity will serve the program as well as the patient population we care for. Being a new program, we have a unique opportunity to develop diversity with fellows as well as faculty.
