The Section of Hepatology at the University of Manitoba is Canada’s first Section of Hepatology that is separate from the Section of Gastroenterology. Our mission is to provide excellence in all three academic pillars: Clinical Care, Research and Education. The physicians of the section work closely with other specialists to ensure our patients benefit from the latest diagnostic techniques and treatments.
The section provides clinical services for outpatients and a citywide inpatient consult service covering all aspects of hepatology including pre and post transplantation care; it serves as the tertiary hepatology referral center for Manitoba, Nunavut and northwestern Ontario. Apart from general hepatology clinics, the section operates specialized tertiary care clinics for viral hepatitis and for liver transplant. Satellite clinics are located at the Grace Hospital and Victoria Hospital
The trainee works in conjunction with a member of the faculty every time they are on a clinical service or on call. The level of supervision is determined by the trainee’s level of academic competence as well as level of training.
The AFC fellowship is one year in duration. We accept both Canadian and international trainees and will enroll one trainee on an annual basis. Applicants must have completed or are expected to complete training in internal medicine or gastroenterology by the start date of the fellowship.
