Transplant Nephrology Fellowship
This is a 1 year American Society of Transplantation (AST) accredited fellowship that occurs after the two-year clinical track. This fellowship offers an in-depth training experience for nephrology fellows interested in the practice of transplant medicine. Both one year (clinical) and two year (research track) training options are available. Transplant Nephrology fellows participate in inpatient rotations involving multidisciplinary medical/surgical rounds, and high-volume outpatient post-transplant clinics at a program, which performs an average of 140 kidney and kidney/pancreas transplants per year. Additional clinical experience includes live donor and recipient evaluation, histocompatibility and tissue-typing, desensitization and paired exchange, allograft biopsy procedure and interpretation, and surgical observation. Daily bedside teaching and bi-weekly education conferences ensure fellows are exposed to highly relevant and up-to- date practices in this rapidly evolving field.
