Michael E. Rogers, DO, MPH

  • Physician, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition
  • Assistant Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics



My clinical specialties are pediatric liver and intestinal transplants. I love working with a variety of clinical disorders, both simple and complex in scope. I also enjoy working with a variety of populations. This passion led me to pursue my work with gastrointestinal disorders. During my fellowship at the University of North Carolina (UNC), I fell in love with liver transplantation. I was able to provide a child with an opportunity for a long and healthy life through the practice of organ donation and transplantation.

While obtaining my master of public health (MPH) in fellowship, I was fortunate to learn and work with the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) on a database project. This experience increased my awareness of the opportunities that working with big data can provide, especially for rare disorders requiring intestinal and multi-visceral transplant treatment in children. My research aims to improve surgical, immunologic and overall outcomes in the immediate and long-term pediatric liver and intestinal transplant patients. I’m also interested in quality improvement and improving the quality of life in children post-transplant.

I’m honored to have received the Walter Tunnessen Award for Best Clinical Science Research from the University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital (2020). I am board certified in Pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics (2016).
