  • Training World-Class Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgeons

Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) Fellowship

First established in 2008, the Duke HPB fellowship provides advanced training in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery for general surgeons who desire to be future leaders in academic surgery. The two-year fellowship also provides broad exposure to complex general surgical oncology as a pretext to a successful career in the multidisciplinary management of pancreatic and hepatobiliary malignancies.  The fellowship is currently accredited by the Fellowship Council and selects fellows through the Fellowship Council match.

Program Director

Dan Blazer III, MD

Fellowship duration: Two years

Prerequisite: Applicants must have finished or be scheduled to finish an ACGME-approved training program in general surgery prior to program initiation.

High volume surgical oncology experiences in hepatobiliary, soft tissue sarcoma, peritoneal surface malignancies, breast, endocrine, and melanoma are complemented by unique rotations in minimally invasive surgery and community surgical oncology to provide an exceptional clinical experience.

Clinical and basic research experiences will be tailored to the interests of each fellow and take advantage of the diverse opportunities present within the Duke University Medical Center.

Options for a third year to pursue additional research training will be considered for interested fellows.
