- Liver fellows practice Once a week, fellows will see patients referred from other clinics or other institutions for a variety of liver diseases, with an emphasis on continuity of care.
- Transplant practice Four days a week, fellows will assist in managing patients both before and after transplantation. Fellows will evaluate patients referred for transplantation and individuals referred as potential living-related donors. Fellows will learn about outpatient care of the liver transplant recipient, including management of immunosuppression, complications of immunosuppression, and recurrent disease after transplant, such as recurrent HCV.
