Advanced Fellowship in Transplant Hepatology
The Advanced Fellowship in Transplant Hepatology in NYU Langone’s Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology trains future academic leaders in transplant hepatology. During this one-year program, fellows work under the supervision of our expert hepatologists and receive extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical experience. You also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clinical research projects related to liver disease and liver transplantation.
As a transplant hepatology fellow, you spend roughly half of your time on inpatient service at NYU Langone hospitals and affiliates. During this consult service, you work with pre– and post–liver transplant patients, patients in transplant evaluation, and patients who have chronic liver disease.
During outpatient rotation months, you see a wide range of liver diseases as you work with Transplant Institute faculty members to evaluate patients with a variety of issues, such as abnormal liver chemistries, autoimmune diseases, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). You also rotate through a hepatology clinic and transplant clinics including a pretransplant evaluation clinic, a pretransplant continuity clinic, and a posttransplant continuity clinic. During this time, you work closely with our liver transplant team, which includes transplant surgeons, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, and social workers.
The Advanced Fellowship in Transplant Hepatology is not ACGME accredited.
Our robust conference schedule includes weekly transplant selection committee and clinical trial meetings, fellow core curriculum conference, grand rounds, and morbidity and mortality (M&M) conference. Monthly meetings include a journal club, two hepatobiliary tumor board conferences, and three pathology conferences.
Liver Transplants and Procurements
As part of our transplant hepatology curriculum, you observe liver transplants and participate in liver procurements. These experiences not only enrich your knowledge, they enhance your understanding of the technicalities and challenges of transplant surgery.
Because research is an important component of your training, we also strongly encourage you to conduct clinical research with members of the hepatology faculty, who provide ample and varied opportunities. Fellows are encouraged to attend the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) national meeting.
