The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s accredited one-year Transplant Hepatology Fellowship is designed to provide outstanding training in clinical hepatology and liver transplantation, fulfilling UNOS criteria for Liver Transplant Physicians. The Hepatology Program functions within the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition and works closely with the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute. It provides comprehensive outpatient and inpatient care to patients with a wide variety of liver diseases.

The Liver Transplantation Program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute is one of the oldest and largest transplantation programs in the United States and has the greatest worldwide experience in liver transplantation. This was achieved primarily through the pioneering work of Dr. Thomas Starzl, who performed the world’s first successful liver transplantation in 1967. The University of Pittsburgh has remained a leader in transplantation and transplant-related research since the early 1980’s. In addition to liver and kidney transplants, pancreas, small bowel, heart and lung transplants are performed as well.

The Transplant Hepatology Fellowship program at the University of Pittsburgh is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship training experience. Eligible applicants must complete training in both internal medicine and gastroenterology before the start of Transplant Hepatology Fellowship training.
