Inpatient Experience
The fellowship program is integrated among two core hospitals, both located within the South Texas Medical Center: University Hospital and Audie Murphy Division, South Texas Veterans Health Care Systems. The 563-bed University Hospital is a major tertiary referral center for South Texas and is the institution responsible for providing care to the indigent population of Bexar County. Audie Murphy V.A. Hospital, a 674-bed facility, is part of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System and is one of the newest VA hospitals in the U.S. Both of these hospitals are staffed full-time by faculty members in the Division of Gastroenterology & Nutrition.

Each hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including medical and surgical intensive care and step-down units, separate Transplant ICU facilities, and fully-equipped endoscopy laboratories. Both hospitals are physically connected to each other and to UTHSC, which houses the clinical and basic science components of the medical school. In addition, fellows rotating on the Pancreatobiliary Service observe advanced endoscopic procedures (EUS/ERCP) at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital – Medical Center, as well as at University Hospital and the V.A. Hospital.
