The Hepatology and Liver Transplantation Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine is accredited by the Texas Medical Board to provide training to qualified candidates in the science and practice of hepatology and liver transplantation.
Our mission is to train transplant hepatologists in an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all hepatobiliary diseases, including life-saving orthotopic liver transplantation.
The training of the next generation of academicians and clinicians in the discipline of hepatology and liver transplantation is crucial to the health and welfare of patients afflicted with diseases of the liver and bile ducts.
- Our full-time hepatology faculty includes six members with triple ABIM certification in internal medicine, gastroenterology and transplant hepatology.
- Our surgical faculty limits their practices to orthotopic liver transplantation, hepatobiliary surgery and combined liver and kidney transplantation.
- Our program is also the core curriculum in hepatology and liver transplantation for gastroenterology fellows in Baylor's ABIM and ACGME-accredited Gastroenterology Fellowship.
The adult outpatient clinics are located in the Baylor St. Luke's Center for Liver Disease. The inpatient services for adult patients are located in the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. Pediatric hepatology and liver transplant services are located in Texas Children’s Hospital.
Our surgical team is responsible for liver transplantation in three centers: Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, Texas Children's, and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. Pediatric hepatologists are responsible exclusively for medical care at Texas Children’s.
All clinical care provided by Hepatology and Liver Transplantation fellows is performed under the direct supervision of full-time faculty attendings in hepatology and liver transplantation surgery 365 days per year. Our program emphasizes development of each of the ACGME core competencies.
