Hepatology Fellowship

Program Summary

The Center for Digestive Health, in partnership with the Gastroenterology Department at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, 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 three providers on the Center for Digestive Health care team who 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 or H-1B visa status are not eligible to apply.

Applications are accepted until Nov. 30 for the academic year beginning the following July. No late applications are accepted.
