The University of Colorado School of Medicine and the Division of Transplant Surgery are proud to provide a two-year Transplant Fellowship Program accredited by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS). Our program is currently set up to train one fellow for two years.
The purpose of the fellowship is to expose and educate a qualified surgeon to the surgical techniques of solid-organ transplantation encompassing procurement and pre/post transplants.
Our program involves a multidisciplinary team approach dedicated to high-quality, patient-focused transplantation. Members of our team include transplant surgeons, hepatologists, nephrologists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, transplant nurses and coordinators, financial coordinators, transplant administrators, social workers, and other professionals who specialize in transplantation. This integrated approach ensures the highest level of care and has given us a competitive advantage improving our clinical outcomes.
Additionally, the Division of Transplant Surgery supports an academic research component. We continue our ongoing development and assessment in techniques with live-donor liver transplant. Since 1994, this program has successfully calibrated many surgeons in completing the two-year fellowship program.
To qualify, all potential applicants must do the following:
- First, submit your curriculum vitae, a personal statement, and three references to the Transplant Program Coordinator, Bretlyn Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org), by March 31, 2014.
- Next, you will need to become a "candidate member" of the ASTS by completing the online application through the ASTS website. A link to the application can be found on the Information for Fellows in Training page. The ASTS uses the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to conduct matches each year by mid-June.
- Finally, once the candidate has been selected for an interview, the Transplant Program Coordinator will communicate by email to arrange a one-on-one interview with the Division of Transplant Surgery.
If you have additional questions regarding the application process, then please email email@example.com or call 720-848-0833.
