Transplant Anesthesia

Program Director, Dr. Achal Dhir


The Fellowship in Liver Transplant anesthesia through the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Western University is designed to equip the clinician with the necessary skills to provide safe anesthetic for any type of liver transplant or other liver related procedures. Since the liver transplant takes many hours, is clinically and physically demanding, the fellowship is heavily focused on clinical training. As new techniques and procedures emerge, teaching and research also become integral components of this fellowship. Fellows of this specialty are expected to be the leaders and be able to start liver transplant program and continue ongoing development in this field. We are committed to providing the highest quality experience and education for each of our fellows. The fellowship is based on Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s CanMeds roles.
