"The AASLD Fellow designation has been created and is reserved for those who have made major contributions to studying and caring for patients with liver disease and is an important way for the Association to recognize their accomplishments." -- Dr. Adrian Di Bisceglie, MD, FACP, AASLD President 2014
The Fellow of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (FAASLD) designation — the highest honor among AASLD membership categories — recognizes superior professional achievement in clinical or academic practice, and in basic or clinical research.
It is awarded to members (physicians, scientists, researchers or health care providers) who have made a significant contribution to the knowledge and/or practice of liver and biliary diseases, and who are considered leaders in the field.
