Applications are reviewed after all supporting documents have been received. Applicants must have completed an ACGME-approved residency program in internal medicine prior to beginning the gastroenterology fellowship program. Completed applications are reviewed by the Fellowship Education Committee.
Based on qualifications and reference letters, selected candidates are invited for an interview. Candidates are notified by e-mail and by phone when they are invited for an interview. Interviews will be conducted in September and October. During interview sessions, the candidate meets with gastroenterology faculty, including the program director and the division director. A tour of The Ohio State University Endoscopy Center is provided. A breakfast with fellow representatives from each training year provides an opportunity for the candidate to learn more about the program.
All faculty interviewers evaluate candidates. After interviews have been completed, applicants are ranked by the Fellowship Selection Committee. Applicant ranking is based on multiple factors, some of which include academic credentials, aptitude, preparedness, motivation and communication skills.
