Liver Transplant & HPB Anaesthesia

Fellowship In Liver Transplant And HPB Anaesthesia

Liver transplant and Hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) anaesthesiology is a highly specialized and demanding specialty which requires integration of good clinical knowledge, evidence based practices and technical skills. Our team has handled more than 1200 liver transplants which includes 300 paediatric liver transplantation in the last decade. This Fellowship program in liver transplant and HPB anesthesia will provide a comprehensive curriculum emphasizing peri-operative care of patients presenting for HPB surgeries and liver transplantation. The main goal of the Fellowship is to help fellows become clinical experts in the field and grow to become academic leaders in the field of liver transplant anesthesiology. The program also provides exposure to paediatric liver transplantation, combined organ transplants and liver critical care. There will be ample research opportunities with participation in ongoing projects or newly developed investigative projects. Financial and logistic support is abundant and fellows are expected to be able to present research abstract at national or international liver transplant-oriented meetings during their course. This program will involve 9 months training in operation theatre and 3 months in liver intensive care.


The curriculum will comprise of two major divisions:

  1. Common core curriculum in transplantation medicine
  2. Basic and advanced clinical and scientific curriculum in anaesthesiology for HPB surgeries and liver transplantation.


This course is designed:

  • To provide trainees with actual knowledge and technical proficiency in the preoperative evaluation, intra operative management, and postoperative care of patients with diseases of the liver and Liver Transplantation.
  • Demonstrate clinical, intra-operative and peri-operative decision making that is based upon sound medical knowledge that minimizes complications and demonstrates an awareness of the limitations of clinical experience and technical skills.
  • To provide experience in the management of patients in an intensive care setting.
  • Manage and lead clinical teams in an efficient and harmonious manner to optimize patient management.
  • To provide an environment in which clinical and basic science literature can be evaluated and assessed critically, leading to sound conclusions.
  • To provide the ability and desire to ask important questions and initiate investigative studies
  • To foster attitudes and interpersonal skills that will allow a trainee to communicate well with peers and patients, and to carry him or herself with dignity.

We propose to cover the curriculum in the form of organized lectures, bed side teaching and teaching whilst in theatres and other interactive sessions. The syllabus for the entire program is broadly outlined below. This list is only a general overview of the subject areas which will be covered and will be expanded to include emerging topics of interest.
