Hepatology Fellowship

Overview

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology of the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications for our ACGME accredited fellowship training program in Pediatric Transplant Hepatology for July 2016.

Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, we are an academic pediatric gastroenterology group with a strong international reputation for high quality research, education and patient care. As the only academic pediatric gastroenterology group in the region, we serve a broad geographic area with a diverse and large patient population with chronic gastrointestinal and liver diseases.

The goal of our one-year program is to train competent pediatric transplant hepatologists who will be leaders in the field. We provide the opportunity for outstanding clinical and research training to Board eligible pediatric gastroenterology candidates, qualifying them to become independent hepatology consultants and meeting eligibility criteria to take the American Board of Pediatrics Transplant Hepatology Certificate of Added Qualification Examination.

Our group has clinical specialty programs in inflammatory bowel disease, motility disorders, therapeutic endoscopy, hepatology, liver transplantation, and one of the few intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation programs in the country. Seattle Children’s, the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center combine to lead the nation in National Institutes of Health research funding, making Seattle’s research opportunities among the best in the world.
