The one-year non ACGME-accredited Hepatology Fellowship includes 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 visa status only. Our program will begin taken applications Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 for a July 1 start date. Selected candidates will be invited for personal interviews in February to meet our faculty and fellows and to view the program.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your intention to apply to the Hepatology Fellowship, and you will be emailed a link from Box.com so that you can upload your documents.
