Function/Duties of Position

This is a two year Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) fellowship. The fellow will participate in projects for Surgical Oncology, clinical patient care, responsibilities as assigned by the supervising physician, and teaching responsibilities for residents and interns as appropriate and directed by supervising Department/Division faculty. 


This Fellowship Council approved HPB fellowship program is designed to draw from the multidisciplinary strengths of faculty members in liver transplant, surgical oncology, and general surgery. The fellowship is aimed to complete the specialty training of well-trained general, surgical oncology and transplant surgeons. The program will be two years in duration. Graduates will be expected to finish the program with substantial technical expertise in liver resection, complex biliary reconstruction, minimally invasive liver surgery, techniques of liver tumor ablation and liver transplantation. Trainees will be thoroughly trained in the evaluation and clinical decision making for patients with benign liver masses, primary liver cancer and the management of metastatic cancer to the liver. While the program is not aimed to train liver transplant surgeons, the trainee will benefit from broad exposure to organ retrieval, recipient hepatectomy and liver transplantation. Depending on the clinical focus of the individual trainee, experience in pancreatic surgery will also be available. Trainees will be expected to develop independent clinical research skills. Under faculty guidance graduates will be expected to design and complete a research project. Ultimately the program is designed to produce superb technical surgeons with a thorough understanding of the clinical aspects of HPB disease who will provide leadership in the advancement of HPB surgery in coming years both in the United States and other countries.
