Our clinical faculty are based at three hospital locations in Memphis:

Faculty members have diverse clinical and academic interests within luminal gastroenterology and hepatology. In addition, we work closely with the Liver Transplant group based at MUH.

Fellows rotate among the three locations in Memphis. At MUH, they work both with the gastroenterology service and the hepatology/liver transplant group.

Our fellowship program is fully accredited by the ACGME. Adequate time and resources are available for research and academic activities, which are a required component of the fellowship program. We have regularly scheduled conferences for the fellows at which attendance is mandatory. Presentations by faculty and fellows cover the broad field of gastroenterology and hepatology as well as regular journal club presentations, clinical case presentations and research seminars.
