ACGME Transplant Hepatology Fellowship
The Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Training Program at the University of California is a one year intensive clinical training program designed to comply with ACGME requirements and to provide training that meets ABIM requirements for Board Eligibility for certification in Transplant Hepatology.
The program provides trainees both extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical experience and didactic teaching in order to prepare the trainee to manage advanced liver disease, and to be fully competent in transplant hepatology and in the diagnosis and management of complex hepatology problems and to understand the approach to clinical research in hepatology. Trainees spend six months on the in-patient Liver Transplantation Service where the responsibilities include patient care, performing procedures (including routine upper and lower endoscopy and liver biopsy) and assisting in the education and supervision of housestaff. Six months are spent in supervised outpatient clinical activities in the Liver Transplant Clinic and the Liver Diseases Consult Clinic, transplant observational activities and clinical research projects. Trainees will participate in a variety of on-going or new clinical research projects related to liver disease or liver transplantation.
