Swedish Gastroenterology and Hepatology/Transplantation are each offering a one-year post-graduate fellowship. Each program will provide one nurse practitioner who is interested in a career in gastroenterology or hepatology/liver transplantation with clinical experience and practice-based knowledge in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Both programs are integrated within our growing Digestive Health Network and involve one-on-one training with physicians, surgeons and ARNPs/PA’s in gastroenterology, hepatology/liver transplant, GI oncology and GI surgery.
