Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas’ Gastroenterology Fellowship program utilizes the third edition of the Gastroenterology Core Curriculum published by the four gastroenterology and hepatology organizations as the basic curriculum.
During the third year, fellows pursue one of four tracks:
Comprehensive consultant – Offers two additional GI rotations and five elective blocks in addition to the three scheduled electives, one required GI rotation and one required hepatology rotation for the third year.
Hepatology – Offers three additional hepatology rotations, two additional electives and one month each on transplant surgery and transplant medicine, in addition to the three scheduled electives, one required GI rotation and one required hepatology rotation for the third-year rotation. This track is designed for individuals with a special interest in hepatology and is distinct from the fourth year program in transplant hepatology, which is required to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) examination in transplant hepatology.
Advanced endoscopy – Offers seven months of advanced endoscopy training (ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound) in addition to the scheduled electives and required GI and hepatology rotations.
Research – Offers seven months of protected research time in addition to the scheduled electives and required GI and hepatology rotations for the third year.
