Program Director Welcome
Welcome to OSU Gastroenterology.
Our goal is to train gastroenterologists to be highly competent in a clinical specialty
that is both clinical and procedural at its core. Our three year program is initially
accredited by the ACGME.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the ACGME requirements and ABIM requirements for
certification in gastroenterology. Clinical rotations will develop Fellows to be independent
in practice in both the clinical side as well as the procedural side at the completion
of three years. Autonomy in clinical decision making will be developed through direct
interaction with our faculty.
Our program includes several training sites, however the bulk of training will occur
at Saint Francis Hospital. Saint Francis is a 1,200 bed hospital and serves Tulsa
and the surrounding rural areas thus capturing both the urban and rural side of practice.
Clinical training is augmented by a robust schedule of conferences including Clinical
Case Conference, GI Core Curriculum, Tumor Board, Interdisciplinary Conference and
Grand Rounds. Fellows are encouraged to initiate and develop plans for research projects
and each fellow is required to complete a high quality scholarly activity project
suitable for publication or presentation during their fellowship.
The Gastroenterology Fellowship accepts two highly qualified physicians per year and
we continually strive to foster a family atmosphere where fellows can develop into
excellent clinicians. Selection is based on board performance, the quality of training
in Internal Medicine, evaluations of competence by the internal medicine program director
and other references, and the personal qualities of the candidate as evaluated during
the interview process.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding the fellowship or
the application process.
