Message from the Program Director

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website of the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship at Houston Methodist Hospital. Our service is ranked among the best programs by U.S. News & World Report. The Houston Methodist Hospital itself is ranked among the country's top hospitals in 10 specialties in U.S. News & World Report's 2022 "Best Hospitals" issue, ranked as the No. 1 hospital in Texas with a national ranking of No. 8 in Gastroenterology and GI surgery. 

Our faculty members are experienced clinicians, educators and researchers with wide ranging areas of expertise across all subspecialties of gastroenterology and hepatology. Our fellowship spans three years with endoscopic training starting in the first day of fellowship. Our program is centered at Houston Methodist Hospital. The fellows also do clinical rotations at MD Anderson for GI oncology.  Our clinical team includes our faculty and fellows along with residents from the Houston Methodist Internal Medicine Residency and medical students from Texas A&M College of Medicine, from both the traditional program and our unique EnMed program.

The clinical training environment allows for a wealth of diverse clinical exposure, spanning the entire spectrum of gastroenterology diseases from esophageal disorders, neurogastroenterology, pancreatobiliary, inflammatory bowel disease, to exposure and training of all hepatologic conditions including robust training in transplant hepatology.  

Houston Methodist Hospital which is a nearly 950 bed hospital with five large intensive care units, with busy GI surgical services and a large multi-organ transplant program contribute to the abundance of clinical experience available. Along with the inpatient rotations, a comprehensive experience in outpatient clinic, including continuity clinic at Houston Methodist and at our community El Centro Clinic, as well as subspecialty clinics with our nationally and world-renowned faculty are a vital part of the program.

Our program participates in the NRMP match with applications through ERAS. We offer a traditional three-year ACGME-accredited fellowship. We also offer a Transplant Hepatology Fellowship as a dual track, or as a separate fourth year. 

Should you have any additional questions, or need further clarification about the program, please do not hesitate to contact me or the fellowship coordinator, Tiffany Bachmann.

 Thank you for your interest in our program. We wish you every success in your future career.
