How to Apply: Research Training in Gastroenterology and Hepatology

MD or MD/PhD applicants interested in pursuing intensive research training as part of an ACGME GI fellowship should apply to the UCSF GI fellowship through ERAS and follow the instructions below.

Prospective applicants seeking intensive research training must submit the supplemental information requested by UCSF regarding research interests and prospective research mentors. Applicants should note that intensive research training is reserved for candidates who intend to pursue careers as independently funded investigators in gastroenterology or hepatology. Because the UCSF Research Training Programs in Gastroenterology and Hepatology are supported by NIDDK, applicants for entry must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants will be considered for the research training program at the time of their evaluation and interview for GI fellowship. Applicants admitted to the GI fellowship as prospective investigators must submit a confirmation of their intent to pursue research training to the Training Program Director during the first 6 months of GI fellowship. Research training begins in year 2 of the GI fellowship.

PhD postdocs interested in joining the UCSF Research Training in Gastroenterology or Hepatology should ideally have a current or pending appointment with one of the training faculty.

Prospective trainees must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Post-doctoral students and their mentors should send an inquiry to the Training Program Director about available training positions approximately 8 months in advance of a proposed start date (e.g., November 1 for the following July 1). If openings are available, application instructions will be provided. PhD postdocs engaged in research at UCSF, but whose faculty mentors are not affiliated with the GI or Hepatology Training Programs, must inquire about eligibility. PhD scientists outside UCSF are ineligible to apply for a postdoctoral position directly through this training program.
