The Application Process

Division of Gastroenterology

Fellowship Training Program

Thank you for your interest in the Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program. This is a three-year training experience accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education that is designed to provide the basic educational and experiential elements necessary for the fellow to become a fully trained consultative gastroenterologist. The responsibilities are initially basic and are designed to give the trainee progressive responsibility with appropriate supervision to allow independent development of his/her skills.

Application for the July 2017 Fellowship Program begins July 1, 2016 and continues through June 30, 2017.


How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Fellowship Program at Georgetown University Hospital through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). ERAS is an internet-based applications process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit fellowship applications, letters of recommendation, Program Director letters, medical transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants, residency programs and medical schools to fellowship program directors using the Internet. For information about the process or to register for ERAS on the web, please go to

Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, Georgetown will contact candidates about the possibility of an interview. Interviews will be scheduled in the spring.



Once you have applied to the Fellowship Program and accepted our invitation to interview with our faculty, fellows and staff, we hope you will choose to rank Georgetown at the top of your list of desirable training programs in Gastroenterology.

Georgetown participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Gastroenterology. This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors' preferences for applicants. For information about NRMP or to register on the web to participate in NRMP, please go to
