  • Program Overview

    Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Program has been approved for the ABIM-approved AASLD GI/Transplant Hepatology Pilot. The pilot allows eligible GI fellows to spend their third year of training in transplant hepatology.  Participating fellows are then able to take both the gastroenterology and transplant hepatology ABIM certification examinations if they can achieve all competencies in both disciplines by the end of the year.

    The liver transplant program at the University of Minnesota performs approximately 80 liver transplants each year and includes an active living donor liver transplant program. The fellowship provides exposure to a variety of internationally-renowned experts in transplant surgery, advanced endoscopy and interventional radiology.

    This training program fulfills all requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

  • Eligibilty
