Mindie Nguyen, MD
Fellowship Program Director



The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology offers a dedicated hepatology fellowship.

Our Hepatology faculty have extensive expertise in all aspects of acute and chronic liver diseases ranging from viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease, hepatobiliary malignancies and liver transplantation.

Following the legacy of Dr. Emmet Keefe, the Hepatology and Liver Transplantation Program at Stanford has a long-standing reputation as a premier hepatology group in patient care and research.

The goal of this fellowship is to train academic hepatologists with expertise in liver transplantation. Our curriculum consists of consultative inpatient service, procedures, outpatient practice and scholarly development.

Our Hepatology Fellowship Program is not ACGME-certified and thus does not require a Gastroenterology Board.
