Program Information

Our goal is to provide advanced clinical and endoscopic training in the diagnosis, treatment and management of gastrointestinal disorders. The program will focus particularly in the staging and endoscopic treatment of pre-malignant and malignant conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, and in the management of gastrointestinal complications in oncologic patients. In addition, we seek to instill in the trainee a desire for innovative research projects that utilize therapeutic endoscopies. 

The training program is a one-year curriculum. All candidates must have completed a three-year accredited gastroenterology fellowship training program, be American board eligible or certified, and have documented competence in general routine endoscopic procedures. Successful candidates are selected after applications are reviewed and personal interviews are conducted in Houston. 

Please note:  We will begin accepting applications for 2015 on December 10, 2013, with an application deadline of March 1, 2014
