Applicants to both the clinical and research fellowship track positions must have completed an internal medicine residency program from an accredited U.S. institution.


The Section of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Baylor College of Medicine offers a fellowship program in Gastroenterology and Hepatology that accepts up to six new fellows each year beginning in July. The goal of this program is to prepare individuals for academic careers by broad training in gastroenterology and hepatology.

Our program is nationally recognized and highly competitive; each year we receive an average of 450 applications. Our faculty serves at the highest levels of many national organizations, including the American Gastroenterological Association, the American College of Gastroenterology, American Association for the Study of Liver Disease, and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. 

Academic Clinical Track

The clinical track is a three-year program for fellows who intend to enter clinical academic practice upon completion of the training program. Read more about this track on our curriculum page.

Research Fellowship Track

The Research Fellowship Track is a four-year fellowship funded by a T32 grant from the NIH, and includes two years of focused training in epidemiology, biostatistics, evidence-based medicine, outcomes research, and health services research.  Fellows in this track will have the opportunity to complete an advanced research degree (Masters in Public Health or Masters in Clinical Investigation) during the fellowship. Read more about this track on our curriculum page.
