Gastroenterology Fellowship

The Gastroenterology Fellowship program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso was accredited in 2011, and the inaugural class of two fellows began training July 1, 2012. The goal is to train and retain physicians to practice in the surrounding underserved U.S.-Mexico border area.

The primary training site for endoscopy and inpatient consultation services is University Medical Center of El Paso, a Level I Trauma Center, nonprofit county-owned hospital. The 354 licensed-bed facility reported 20,254 admissions in its 2022 Annual Report. 

At the end of training, the fellow will have met the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine {ABIM) for eligibility for the admission to the gastroenterology examination. Our program graduates possess the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, attitudes and values of professionalism essential to the practice of gastroenterology. Our graduates have obtained positions in advanced fellowship programs, academic medicine, and clinical practice.
