Transplant Hepatology Fellowship (Minnesota)
The one-year Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Program offers you a thorough, advanced education in all aspects of hepatology. The curriculum was carefully designed to provide a balance of transplant and non-transplant clinical, didactic and investigative experience, and to prepare you for a career in academic hepatology.
The primary objective is to train superior physicians in the pathophysiological mechanisms, clinical manifestations, and management of liver disease.
The usual duration of this fellowship is one year, but it may be extended an additional year if funding is available.
This training program fulfills the requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Program began at Mayo Clinic in 1991 as the Hepatology/Liver Transplant Fellowship and was renamed in 2007. Since the program began, approximately 40 fellows have completed their training in this program. Going forward, it is anticipated that three fellows will complete this program annually.
To ensure you gain proficiency and develop the corresponding technical skills, your performance is monitored throughout this program. You are formally evaluated by your supervising faculty member following the completion of each clinical rotation; and then meet accordingly with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you regularly evaluate the faculty to ensure your educational goals are being met.
