Clinical Scholar Track

This Clinical Scholar Track of the Gastroenterology Fellowship Program is designed to train physicians to be scholarly gastroenterology/hepatology consultants in an academic setting. This Fellowship Program is grounded in the expectation that trainees learn to provide outstanding clinical care in a scholarly fashion, including having a knowledge of the natural history of disease, and the most recent literature dictating best practices.

The track provides extensive experience in gastroenterology and hepatology consultations and procedures over a three-year period. Fellows rotate among the core UT Southwestern University Hospitals, maintain a three-year continuity clinic, and have an opportunity to participate in a variety of electives.

As part of this program, each fellow is also expected to fully develop at least one research project, from conception to manuscript completion.

Applications must be submitted via ERAS. The program participates in the match program for Gastroenterology Fellowship programs. The Fellowship Program is highly competitive, so interviews can be offered only to select applicants. Interviews typically take place on Saturdays in September and October each year. Our Fellowship Program welcomes applicants with J-1 visas. UT Southwestern does not sponsor H1-B visas for clinical trainees.
