The word hepatology is derived from the Greek word
hepato, meaning "liver".
Transplant Hepatology training involves one year of additional
clinical training after completion of both residency in internal
medicine and fellowship training in gastroenterology. Candidates
must also complete the following procedural requirements:
performance of at least 30 percutaneous liver biopsies, including
allograft biopsies; interpretation of 200 native and allograft
liver biopsies; and knowledge of indications, contraindications,
and complications of allograft biopsies. For more on training
requirements, visit the ABIM's Web site: www.abim.org/certification/policies/imss/thep.aspx.
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American
Board of Pediatrics (ABP) jointly developed the Transplant
Hepatology Certification Program. Before becoming certified in
Transplant Hepatology, physicians must be ABIM certified in
internal medicine and maintain a current, underlying certificate in
gastroenterology. For more on certification requirements, visit the
ABIM's Web site: www.abim.org/certification/policies/imss/thep.aspx.
For the 2013-2014 academic year there are 39 Accreditation
Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited training
programs in Transplant Hepatology with 35 trainees.
