Fellowship | Gastroenterology
Division Statement | Faculty | Research/Scholarly Activities | Fellowship | Apply
The Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at ETSU is a three-year clinical/research fellowship. Two first-year Fellows are accepted to the program each year. Each Fellow will have a basic core curriculum involving rotations at each of the affiliated facilities. In preparing the gastroenterologist for the next millennium, the training must move beyond that of simply providing a general Gastroenterology experience.
Fellows are expected to participate in clinical research, basic research, or other
scholarly activities which include publication(s) in peer reviewed journals. At the
conclusion of the three-year fellowship training, the fellow will be a fully trained
gastroenterologist who will be able to diagnose, treat, and manage all forms of gastrointestinal
and liver disease.
