Hepatology Fellowship


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 2021.

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 team is comprised of 4 pediatric transplant hepatologists, 4 pediatric transplant surgeons, 2 pediatric nurse practitioners, 4 pediatric nurse coordinators, and a large collaborative team that includes administrative leaders, transplant pharmacists, transplant dietitians, transplant social work, transplant critical care, transplant infectious diseases, interventional radiology, scheduling coordinators, compliance specialists and data analysts. To learn more about our transplant team visit us at Seattle Children's Hospital Transplant Team.

In addition to clinical specialty programs in hepatology, liver transplantation (deceased and living donation) and one of the few intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation programs in the country, we also have programs in inflammatory bowel disease, motility disorders, and therapeutic endoscopy. 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.

We believe that the diversity of our fellows, residents, medical students, staff and faculty is a fundamental element of our ability to ensure that all our patients and families receive the highest-quality care – no matter their race, ethnicity, language, literacy, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or finances. Our objective is to create a community that encourages participation and connection, and that values and includes each individual's unique contribution, in every aspect of our mission and practice.
