The Gastroenterology service at each hospital provides consultative care to hospital inpatients and offers consultative appointments and endoscopic procedures to outpatients. UCSF is home to the Center for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, Familial/Hereditary Gastrointestinal Cancer Prevention (cancer genetics/inherited disorders clinic), the Liver Transplant Program, Advanced Endoscopy and Endoscopic Ultrasound, Center for Gastrointestinal Motility and Secretion, and the Intestinal Failure Program.

At the Parnassus campus, gastroenterology and hepatology services are separated and the Liver Transplant program operates its own inpatient service. At Zuckerberg San Francisco General and the San Francisco VA Medical Center, the gastroenterology and hepatology services are united.
