Fellows & Early Career
After a three-year residency in either internal medicine or pediatrics, prospective GI fellows enroll in another three-year residency in gastroenterology. AGA is here to help you through that transition and beyond.

The NRMP provides an impartial venue for matching applicants’ and programs’ preferences for each other consistently, allowing a uniform date of appointment to positions in graduate medical education in the U.S.
For GI Division Chiefs & Fellowship Directors
- Please distribute to your fellowship applicants the joint-society adopted resolution, approved November 2005 that encourages applicants to consider all programs before making an early and quick decision on where to train.
- Contact your peers directly to engage in a constructive dialogue about the Match and the overall and multiple benefits of participating.
- Training directors are strongly encouraged to assume direct responsibility for registering and entering all necessary data into the NRMP’s registration system. This includes the program’s information and the number of positions entered into the Match per track. The Match agreement is legally binding; therefore, it is important that the training director ensures the accuracy of this data.
- Eligible programs and interested fellows can apply to AASLD during the fellow’s second year.
- We encourage programs to identify interested fellows during their first year to ensure that the potential pilot fellow can complete all clinical GI requirements by the end of the second year and is on a trajectory to complete all GI competencies by the end of the third year to a degree sufficient to allow the fellow to focus the majority of the third year on the achievement of competency in transplant hepatology.
- Interested fellows cannot apply to the pilot program before they enroll in a GI fellowship program; however, we encourage fellows to discuss their interest in transplant hepatology and in the pilot when they apply, in part to determine whether participation in the pilot may be an option.
