The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship recruits internal medicine graduates and PGY-3 residents who are interested in a career in gastrointestinal medicine. Interested applicants should apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service. The program begins reviewing applications for the 2022 cycle on July 21, 2021.
To apply, enter Electronic Residency Application Service information anytime between July 1 and Aug. 12, and choose “The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School” to ensure that the program receives your application. The program accepts documents from ERAS only.
Include the following in ERAS:
- Common application form, including a one-page personal statement and medical school transcript. The personal statement is a way to learn more about you. The program will read your CVs carefully, so you don’t need to repeat information mentioned in your CV.
- Minimum of three letters of recommendation: one from your program director and two others from your current institution, preferably one from a faculty member in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
- Wallet-sized color photograph.
- USMLE transcripts.
- For foreign medical graduates: Candidates requiring certification from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates will only be invited to interview if they are ECFMG certified. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or have an Employment Authorization Document. The program does not sponsor J-1 or H-1 visas.
After a review of application materials, the program will contact qualified applicants to schedule an interview. The program conducts interviews from September through October. All interviews for the 2022 application cycle will be virtual.
Optional in-person visits will be arranged for interviewees who are interested in touring facilities. No interviews are conducted during these in-person visits. These visits are completely optional and do not influence the ranking of interviewees.
