Our liver transplant anesthesia fellows work with an outstanding team of liver transplant anesthesiologists and surgeons at one of the busiest transplant centers in the country. Our anesthesia team consists of 14 faculty trained in liver transplant anesthesia and critical care. We perform close to 200 liver transplants per year, including 20-30 living donor transplants and 8-10 pediatric transplants. Patients are often acutely ill, with high MELD scores at time of transplant.
In this unique non-ACGME fellowship, trainees split their time between working as the liver transplant anesthesia fellow and serving on faculty as an attending clinical instructor in the general OR (average 2 days/week in the main OR) and have the opportunity to work overtime hours in the general OR for additional pay. Our fellows participate in adult and pediatric cadaveric and living donor liver transplants, as well as transplant selection committee meetings, transplant morbidity and mortality conference, and journal club. Fellows are expected to participate in at least one scholarly project during the year. There are several ongoing research, education, and quality improvement projects to which fellows may wish to contribute.
The fellowship prepares candidates for leadership positions in transplant centers and fulfills criteria required to become Director of Liver Transplant Anesthesia as put forward by the ASA.
