Hepatology Fellowship

One Year Clinical Hepatology Fellowship Program

I am pleased to announce that effective July 1, 2012 the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Missouri School of Medicine-Columbia will offer a new 1-year non ACGME-accredited hepatology fellowship that will include vigorous training in outpatient and inpatient settings in addition to sponsored rotation at Washington University Liver Transplant Program.

The goal of the program is to produce hepatologists who possess a range of attributes including the knowledge base of pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and management of liver disease, indications and contradictions to liver transplant, diagnostic liver biopsy procedures, and appreciation of the humanistic and ethical aspects of liver disease. The candidate must have completed or about to complete a three-year ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine residency training program in the United States and be board eligible/certified.

This program will enable the trainee after completion to seek a hepatologist position in inpatient/outpatient settings. In addition, this fellowship will be well suited for those who wish to strengthen their credentials to pursue the ACGME-accredited GI fellowship.

Our program accepts J1/H1 visa status. Our program will begin taken applications Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2016, for a July 1, 2017, start date. Selected candidates will be invited for personal interviews in December 2016 to meet our faculty and fellows and to view the program.

Please send an email to indicating your intention to apply to the Hepatology Fellowship, and you will be emailed a link from so that you can upload your documents.
