The Section of Hepatology at the University of Manitoba became Canada's first independent (from GI) Hepatology Section on January 1, 2002. The Section consists of Hepatologists, clinical and research nurses, a Clinical Assistant, Post-doctoral Fellows, Epidemiologists, Immunologists and other basic science researchers. The Hepatology Section is quite active in clinical care, pre and post-transplantation care, clinical trials, basic science research and investigator initiated studies.
TIME SPENT IN THE SECTION OF HEPATOLOGY:
Hepatology Consult Service
The Hepatology consult service provides consultative advice regarding any in-patient with suspected or established liver disease. The consult service consists of a Hepatologist staff member, and at times, a GI or Hepatology Fellow, Internal Medicine Resident and/or Medical Student. As in-patients are by definition more ill than out-patients, your first priority will be to assess any new inpatient consultation to Hepatology. After you have assessed the new consult, you should set up a time with the Hepatology staff member in order to review and learn from this case.
In order to experience outpatient medicine, you will participate in approximately 4 outpatient clinics per week. The Section of Hepatology has three types of outpatient clinics: General Hepatology clinics, Viral Hepatitis Investigative Unit Clinics, as well as Liver Transplant Clinics. These clinics are located in the Health Sciences Centre.
ON CALL DUTIES:
Medical students and residents are expected to take one weekend of call during their rotation.
