    Does anyone know how competitive it is to get into an osteopathic gastroenterology fellowship? I will be a pGY1 at an ACGME program this year and hope to do GI.

    It's hard to say, but given that there are so few AOA-accredited GI fellowships and the number of people in AOA IM programs who you will be competing with, it is likely as difficult, if not more. Also, you're coming from an ACGME residency, so there's the extra obstacle of getting AOA approval of (at least) your internship. Are you applying to ACGME programs?
