The Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship in San Antonio is the first program of its kind in San Antonio. The Baylor College of Medicine Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition currently includes six faculty members and a support staff of 12.
The clinical training program is conducted under the auspices of The Children's Hospital of San Antonio and includes six clinical faculty members who perform more than 3,000 outpatient and more than 500 in-patient consultations annually. Research training will be supported by The Max and Minnie Tomerlin Voelcker Clinical Research Center and in association with the Texas Medical Center and benefits from abundant research resources of the center in general and of Baylor College of Medicine in particular. The section recruits one new fellow a year, for a total of three fellows in the program.
The goal of this training program is to educate pediatricians to become outstanding clinicians who can also compete at the cutting edge of clinical research in academia. The program is designed around the guidelines developed by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, and is intended to allow trainees to meet the requirements for certification by the Sub-Board for Pediatric Gastroenterology of the American Board of Pediatrics.
All entrants must have completed the equivalent of three years of ACGME-accredited residency training in pediatrics and be board certified or board eligible in pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics.
