GI Clinical Track Fellowship

The goal of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Gastroenterology Fellowship Program is to provide excellent clinical and research training in gastroenterology and hepatology. The program is structured to provide the most balanced and comprehensive training to prepare graduating fellows for success in any chosen career path. Graduating fellows will meet the requirements to obtain subspecialty certification in Gastroenterology as outlined by the American Board of Internal Medicine. We typically accept four new fellows each year for training.

Within the three years spent at MUSC, fellows will have a wide range of exposure to patients, seen at our tertiary care center as well as the onsite Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. The curriculum is designed to offer both inpatient and outpatient training in all aspects of gastroenterology, including general luminal GI, hepatology, biliary-pancreatic consult, inflammatory bowel disease, and esophageal motility diseases. Endoscopic exposure occurs through all these rotations with months dedicated to refining endoscopic skills throughout the fellowship. Additionally, in the final year, there is an opportunity to offer specialized training in a certain niche to allow each fellow to carve their own individual career path. Weekly continuity clinics allow fellows to establish longitudinal relationships with patients at MUSC and our VA Medical Center. 

Education and research are other areas of focus for the fellowship. Fellows are actively involved in the teaching of medical students and residents throughout their fellowship, with formal training in education and leadership available through MUSC. Protected research time is provided each year with extensive mentorship available. Fellows are encouraged to develop research projects and funding is available to present research at regional and national meetings. Opportunities are available for advanced training in research methods, including a Master of Science in Clinical Research Program (MSCR).
