Our curriculum is predicated on ACGME requirements for Hepatology and Liver Transplantation. The Hepatology and Liver Transplantation Fellowship curriculum also provides training in Hepatology and Liver Transplantation for fellows in our ACGME-accredited Gastroenterology Fellowship program. The curriculum is designed for Hepatology and Liver Transplantation fellows to:

  • Train in a world-class, caring, accessible environment for the diagnosis and medical, surgical and radiological treatment of all hepatobiliary diseases afflicting adults.
  • Participate fully in a multidepartmental, multidisciplinary, multi-institutional team effort of physicians, surgeons, nurses, clinician investigators and trainees to care for adult patients with hepatobiliary diseases.
  • Excel in providing the pre-operative and post-operative care required for the success of life-saving liver transplantation alone or in combination with other vital organs, including kidney, heart and lung.
  • Excel in non-transplant surgical and radiological care of patients with primary and secondary hepatobiliary malignancies.
  • Participate in the conduct of innovative clinical trials of novel investigational treatments.
  • Ensure a seamless transition of older pediatric patients to the care of adult hepatologists.
