Hepatology Fellowship

The Digestive Disease Institute, in partnership with the Gastroenterology Department at Virginia Mason, offers a one-year advanced fellowship opportunity for extensive training in hepatology, including liver biopsies, inpatient and outpatient consultations, and protected time for clinical research. Available to physicians who have already completed a three-year medicine residency, this outstanding opportunity focuses on providers who are interested in future hepatology-focused internal medicine, hospitalist or gastroenterology practice.

The fellowship faculty consists of four providers on the Digestive Disease Institute care team who are a part of the Liver Center of Excellence and have extensive expertise in the multidisciplinary treatment of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, liver cancer, fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.

Physicians who are board certified or eligible for board certification in internal medicine by the fellowship start date (July) are eligible. Physicians with J1 visa status are not eligible to apply.

We are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Hepatology fellows must have completed an ACGME-approved internal medicine residency program and be eligible for full Washington State medical licensure such that they can obtain privileges to perform routine hepatology procedures at Virginia Mason. To apply, please submit a completed Hepatology Fellowship Application with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, personal statement, three letters of recommendation, and TOEFL scores by Nov. 30, 2017 to:
