Virtual Interviews

This year all UTHSC GME Programs will conduct virtual interviews only -- per the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Coalition for Physician Accountability recommendations -- to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applicants must have completed a three-year accredited Internal Medicine Residency prior to entering our Gastroenterology Fellowship.  All applicants must be registered in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) Medical Subspecialties Match.  Also, our program only accepts applications via the AAMC's ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service).  We DO NOT consider candidates outside the NRMP and ERAS systems.

Applicants must submit required documentation via ERAS including:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • ECFMG Certificate, if applicable
  • USMLE Scores (including Step 3)
  • 3 Letters of Recommendation
  • Personal Statement

Interviews are by invitation only.  Only qualified applicants will be invited to interview.
