HepatoPancreatoBiliary Surgical Fellowship

The Digestive Disease Institute, in partnership with the Surgery and Gastroenterology Departments at Virginia Mason, offers two-year advanced fellowship opportunity for concentrated experience in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery.

Accredited by The Fellowship Council, the HepatoPancreatoBiliary (HPB) Surgical Fellowship program provides a concentrated exposure to patients with benign and malignant pancreatic, biliary and liver diseases. This fellowship will meet and exceed the Fellowship Council and the AHPBA requirements for certification in HPB surgery (minimum of 100 total major operative HPB cases: 25 major liver, 15 complex biliary, 25 major pancreas). The fellow will act in the primary surgeon role for at least 70 of these major cases.

The program provides in-depth experience in the pre- and post-operative management of patients with simple and complex HPB pathology as well as the acquisition of technical skills for performing complex HPB operations. Beyond the technical aspects of HPB surgery, the fellow will have a rigorous curriculum that covers cognitive, system-based, and multidisciplinary care aspects of patients with HPB disease, including the use of the team’s newly developed Pancreatic Head Mass Care Pathway and Pancreatic Cyst Care Pathway, as well as use of the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer Staging System.This will encompass pre-operative workup, postoperative management, multi-disciplinary team approach, and HPB clinical research.

The fellowship faculty consists of four HPB surgeons on the Digestive Disease Institute care team who are a part of the Liver, Pancreas, and Biliary Surgery Center of Excellence and have extensive expertise in the treatment and research of digestive disease. The fellow will work directly with Adnan Alseidi, MD, EdM, FACS; Scott Helton, MD, FACS; Thomas Biehl, MD, FACS; and Flavio Rocha, MD.
