The Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Training Program at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a one year intensive clinical training program that is offered to applicants that have completed a full 3-year GI fellowship.

It is an ACGME-accredited program that meets ABIM requirements for Board Eligibility for certification in Transplant Hepatology and provides both extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical experience and didactic teaching in order to prepare the trainee to diagnose and manage advanced complex liver disease, and to manage pre- and post-transplant hepatology patients.

Inpatient responsibilities include care of pre and post-transplant liver patients, performing procedures (including routine upper and lower endoscopy and liver biopsy) and the education and supervision of housestaff. Outpatient clinical activities include patient care in the Transplant Hepatology and General Hepatology Clinic, transplant observational activities, and quality improvement projects.

ABIM pilot (GI + Transplant Hepatology in a single 3-year program)

The BIDMC GI fellowship program participates in the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) pilot program to integrate formal, competency-based Transplant Hepatology training into the 3-year GI fellowship program. Graduates of the pilot program, which is approved by both ABIM and ACGME, will be eligible to take both GI and Transplant Hepatology ABIM board certification examinations after 3 years of training. Up to one fellow per year may enter the program.
