The world-renowned faculty within the Division of Hepatology at the University of Miami has been instrumental in the advancement of diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases for several decades. In addition to liver transplantation, we provide broad exposure to all aspects of adult hepatology, including viral hepatitis, autoimmune and cholestatic liver diseases, fatty liver disease, hepatocellular carcinoma and other forms of acute and chronic liver disease.

We have a busy inpatient service and a dynamic outpatient practice. Furthermore, hepatology fellows participate in all academic activities of the Division of Hepatology and interface with the gastroenterology and transplant surgery divisions.
