Welcome from Janis Stoll, MD
Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Transplant Hepatology Fellowship Program in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The faculty has worked hard to design a training program with complete, in-depth, didactic presentations and extensive clinical and research experience. The ACGME accredited program is continuously evaluated and updated to provide cutting-edge training that prepares fellows to be leaders in the specialty of transplant hepatology.
The 12-month curriculum includes immersion in our active transplant hepatology service, inpatient and outpatient hepatology services, procedure training (esophageal banding, sclerotherapy and liver biopsies) and rotations in adult hepatology, transplant pathology and interventional radiology. Additionally, the program performs 15-20 liver transplants/annum and follows 120 post-transplant patients.
Our program’s overall aims are to prepare fellows for a career in academics by enabling them to:
- Provide superb and expert clinical care through clinical training at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Barnes-Jewish Hospital
- Excel as clinician educators through teaching experiences, interacting with medical students at Washington University School of Medicine and other trainees in the Washington University School of Medicine/Barnes-Jewish Hospital/St. Louis Children’s Hospital Consortium
- Become independent investigators in basic science, translational and/or clinical research through interactions with research faculty mentors at Washington University School of Medicine
Washington University School of Medicine is one of the country’s premier research institutions, providing an abundance of opportunity for scholarly projects within the one year of training. We currently participate in multiple NIH-funded basic and clinical liver studies, consortiums (CFLD, SPLIT, iWITH) and industry studies.
