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.

Applications for the July 2022 Fellowship Program begin July 2021.

How to Apply through ERAS

You must apply for the Fellowship Program at MedStar 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. Visit the ERAS website for more information about the process or to register.

Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, a committee of program faculty from all three rotation sites review the applications. Interviews will be scheduled in the fall. Invitations to interview are sent via ERAS from our program coordinator.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital typically hosts 2-3 interview days where candidates are invited to meet a vareity of faculty from all three of our clinical sites in a series of 15 to 20 minutes interviews. The interview day also includes a program overview, hospital tour, informal meetings with current fellows, and lunch with faculty and fellows.
