Transplant Hepatology Fellowship
The transplant hepatology fellowship at The Mount Sinai Health System in New York City offers year-long advanced clinical training to applicants who have already completed a gastroenterology fellowship. Mount Sinai’s transplant hepatology fellowship was the first to be ACGME-approved in the Northeast and remains the largest such fellowship in the United States. The program was reaccredited in 2010 by ACGME for the maximum five-and-a-half years.
The goal of the transplant hepatology fellowship is to train tomorrow's leaders in academic hepatology. Many former trainees are now leaders in transplant hepatology throughout the world. The fellowship qualifies candidates for advanced UNOS certification in liver transplantation and offers thorough exposure to both outpatient and inpatient management of a wide variety of acute and chronic liver diseases. Fellows take an active role in educating house staff and medical students in the diagnosis and management of liver diseases.
We encourage transplant hepatology fellows to participate in clinical research. Fellows have the opportunity to continue their research projects under the aegis of an NIH fellowship grant in liver disease and gastroenterology.
Conferences and didactic interactions complement the clinical experience. The fellowship is conducted within the Recanati-Miller Transplantation Institute and the Division of Liver Diseases, which is distinct from the Division of Gastroenterology.
We are currently taking applications for the July 2016-2017 fellowship year. The Application deadline for the July 2016–June 2017 fellowship year is January 31, 2015. Selected candidates will be invited for interviews. Offers will be made no later than May 1, 2015.
