Welcome to

The Pediatric Liver Program 


Education & Training

Our program is an integral part of the fellowship training in the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition. All gastroenterology fellows have dedicated hepatology rotations.

The overall goal of the rotation is for the fellow to master all aspects of direct clinical care of pre and post liver transplant patients, as well as patients afflicted with non-transplant related diseases of the liver. The skills to be acquired include clinical assessment, treatment plan formulation, team organization, regulatory compliance, quality assurance, and procedural expertise.

Our fellows will treat transplant candidates from start to finish. Their care of these patients will begin in the assessment phase and carry through the evaluation process, listing process, pre-transplant support (medical, procedural, nutritional), critical peri-transplant phase, as well as management of acute post-transplant complications. A mastery of the actions and application of immunosuppressant agents in patient care protocols will be essential.

By the completion of the fellowship, the trainee will have become familiar with the practices of general hepatology and transplantation in both intensive and non-intensive care inpatient settings, as well as in the outpatient setting.
