Liver Transplant Anesthesiology Fellowship

The Liver Transplant Anesthesiology Fellowship at the University of Nebraska Medical Center offers a broad-based clinical experience including, but not limited to:

We will train and mentor future liver transplant anesthesiologists to excel clinically and in the fields of education and research. We are committed to providing the highest quality experience and education for each of our fellows.

The fellowship is a non-ACGME accredited fellowship, and we offer one fellowship position annually. Given our clinical volume, our fellows have an abundance of experience and personalized training. The fellow will spend eight months as a transplant anesthesia fellow and four months as junior faculty at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. During their time as faculty, they will participate as the attending anesthesiologist supervising both residents and CRNAs.
