​​Pediatric Transplant Hepatology Fellowship


About the Fellowship

Children’s Hospital Colorado is proud to offer an ACGME-accredited fellowship training program in Pediatric Transplant Hepatology. 

The goal of the one-year fellowship is to train future leaders in the field of pediatric transplant hepatology. 

The program provides comprehensive training in inpatient and outpatient care of children with a wide variety of hepato-biliary problems, including those who require transplantation. 

Fellows will spend approximately 50 percent of their time participating in a mentored research project. In addition, there will be opportunities to educate and supervise pediatric residents and GI fellows.

Children's Hospital Colorado

Children’s Hospital Colorado is a 444-bed hospital located on the Anschutz Medical Campus east of Denver and is home to the only pediatric liver transplant center in Colorado and surrounding states. The program aims to perform between 12 and 20 pediatric liver transplants per year and follows 110 post-transplant patients.

Children’s Hospital Colorado was one of the first centers in the country to perform pediatric liver transplantation and now has over 30 years of programmatic experience. Six board-certified pediatric transplant hepatologists and three transplant surgeons interact closely with faculty from radiology, pathology, anesthesiology, and infectious diseases to provide outstanding individualized multi-disciplinary clinical care.

The clinical service draws patients not only from the state of Colorado, but also from Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Utah, and New Mexico. 

The program also has a strong research track-record with involvement in multiple NIH-funded basic and clinical liver research programs (e.g., ChiLDReN, CFLD, PALF, IWITH, SPLIT, BARC, MITOHEP and industry studies), offering a unique academic environment for successful training in advanced pediatric transplant hepatology.
