Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine trains outstanding gastroenterologists in a three-year ACGME-accredited program that combines excellent clinical and academic training. The program curriculum is tailored to each individual fellow’s career goals. Core program values include diversity, equity, and inclusion. Learn more about the school's DEI values via the GME diversity website.

Education and mentoring are critical to the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, which hosts one of the most robust general gastrointestinal and advanced therapeutic endoscopy fellowships in the United States. Former trainees of this program are now leaders at academic medical centers throughout the United States and successful practicing gastroenterologists in Indiana and beyond.


Five gastroenterology fellowship positions are available each year at IU School of Medicine. Apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Program Director's Message

Thank you for your interest in the GI Fellowship program at Indiana University School of Medicine! IU School of Medicine is the largest medical school in the nation, and our division is one of the largest and most comprehensive GI divisions in the country and the only tertiary care center for gastroenterology and hepatology for the state of Indiana.

Our program supports, guides and prepares fellows to reach the maximum of their potential, to realize their personal goals and to succeed in their future careers whether at academic institutions or community practices. With the prominence and commitment of our large group of faculty, with diverse strengths and interests, we offer our fellows a broad spectrum of GI training in a tailored three-year program. With multiple training sites on the downtown Indianapolis campus, our fellows experience the unique and different strengths of each site, and a comprehensive educational experience in clinical training and research.

In alignment with the IU School of Medicine core values, our program offers a positive and inclusive experience, in an environment that embodies excellence, respect, collegiality, integrity, diversity and cooperation. The well-being of our fellows is equally important to us to the quality of the education we provide them.

I, along with the entire GI division faculty and staff, wish you the best as you move forward with your career plans and invite you to further explore our program. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
