Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Gastroenterology Fellowship program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Lubbock was accredited in 2021, and the inaugural class of two fellows began training July 1, 2022. The goal is to train and retain physicians to practice in the surrounding West Texas communities.

The primary training site for endoscopy and inpatient consultation services is University Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center, nonprofit county-owned hospital. The 394-bed facility reported 14,824 admissions annually in its 2017 Annual Report.

At the end of training, the fellow will have met the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine {ABIM) for eligibility for the admission to the gastroenterology examination. Our program graduates possess the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, attitudes and values of professionalism essential to the practice of gastroenterology. Our graduates have obtained positions in advanced fellowship programs, academic medicine, and clinical practice.

As an EEO/AA employer, the Texas Tech University System and its components will not discriminate in our employment practices based on an applicant’s race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or status as a protected veteran. More information can be found here.

We aim to prepare exceptional physicians for successful careers in gastroenterology and hepatology and to educate fellows to become expert clinicians and thought leaders in clinical and basic research.

Our comprehensive training is comprised of clinical teaching, didactic instruction, and mentoring, throughout training in which our fellows have the opportunity to work closely with the faculty.  We foster an educational environment in which the well-being and professional development of our fellows are highly valued.

Applications are accepted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) only. We will be participating in the NRMP Match and will accept applications for the fellowship from July 15 to September 30. Applications will be reviewed and then selected applicants will be contacted to schedule interviews. Inquiries concerning the Gastroenterology Fellowship can be directed to the fellowship program coordinator.
