The three-year combined Fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Maryland and Mercy Medical Center is designed to provide broad training in clinical gastroenterology and hepatology and in clinical research.

The first year of the fellowship centered at the University of Maryland Medical Center and Baltimore VA Medical Center (BVAMC). The second and third years are based at Mercy Medical Center, a community teaching hospital affiliated with University of Maryland School of Medicine. The fellowship leads to board-eligibility in Gastroenterology and is designed to develop fellows into exceptional clinical practice, academic clinical investigator or academic clinician-educators.

The Mercy Medical Center component of the fellowship program is supervised by Paul J. Thuluvath, MD, director for the Institute of Digestive Health and Liver Diseases (IDHLD) at the Mercy Medical Center. The IDHLD has many nationally and internationally recognized clinicians and researchers with many years of academic experience of training gifted GI fellows. Mercy Medical Center also has a long-established tradition of co-training residents in conjunction with University of Maryland Medical Center. Find out more information about the IDHLD.
