The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition in the Department of Pediatrics at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital/Stanford University School of Medicine is recruiting a Clinical Assistant, Clinical Associate, Clinical Professor for the position of a Pediatric Transplant Hepatologist in the Clinical Educator line.
We are seeking an applicant who is Transplant Hepatology board-certified or board-eligible. The major criterion for appointment as Clinician Educators is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, teaching, administrative responsibilities, and scholarship.
The liver transplant program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital was started in 1995 and is a large volume center of excellence. We have performed over 850 liver transplants and currently care for over 400 post-transplant patients. Our program offers laparoscopic living donor liver transplants, multivisceral transplants, and the largest number of combined heart-liver transplants in the U.S. Our team includes 7 pediatric hepatologists, 5 pioneer pediatric liver transplant surgeons, including its Chief Dr. Carlos Esquivel (President of IPTA), 2 advanced endoscopists who specialize in hepatobiliary procedures, 3 interventional radiologists, 15 transplants advanced practice providers (inpatient and outpatient), 2 transplant social workers and 1 transplant pharmacist, all of whom specialize in the care of liver transplant patients. Our transplant hepatology team also includes a dedicated team of pediatric intensivists, transplant ID, and transplant immunology. Our transplant outreach program includes 10 sites in California, Nevada, Oregon, New Mexico, and Hawaii.
We consider hepatology as a comprehensive continuum that spans transplant and non-transplant. To advance this academic mission, we train an ACGME-accredited transplant hepatology fellow each year, in addition to the 9 GI fellows in our program. Our hepatology group is supported by a liver clinical research coordinator, nurse, and transplant/hepatology dietician. We participate in multidisciplinary clinics, including single ventricle, Alagille syndrome, and teen transition clinic.
