Eligibility Criteria

  • MD or DO
  • US citizenship, permanent resident or J1 Visa status
  • Completion of three years of U.S. postgraduate residency training in an ACGME-accredited program by the time of entry into the fellowship program

Candidate Selection

Applications are reviewed after all supporting documents have been received. Applicants must have completed an ACGME-approved residency program in internal medicine prior to beginning the gastroenterology fellowship program. Completed applications are reviewed by the Fellowship Education Committee.

Candidate Interviews

Based on qualifications and reference letters, selected candidates are invited for an interview. Candidates are notified via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) when they are invited to interview. Interviews will take place from August to October, and all interviews will be conducted virtually. This policy was initiated during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have chosen to maintain it to reduce costs, minimize disruptions to personal and professional schedules, and ensure equal accessibility for all candidates. During interview sessions, the candidate meets with gastroenterology faculty and current fellows. A virtual tour of The University of Cincinnati Medical Center and VA Medical Center is provided.

All faculty interviewers assess candidates during the interview process. Following the completion of interviews, applicants are ranked by the Fellowship Selection Committee. This ranking is determined based on various factors, including academic credentials, aptitude, preparedness, motivation, and communication skills.

The Division of Digestive Diseases upholds a policy of non-discrimination based on gender, race, age, religion, ethnicity, national origin, or disability.


Application to our ACGME-accredited gastroenterology fellowship program is done via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Paper applications will not be reviewed. All positions in the gastroenterology program are filled through the NRMP match.
