Division of Transplant Surgery
University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC)
The University of Colorado Health Sciences Center Graduate Medical Education and the Division of Transplant Surgery are proud to provide a two year Transplant Fellowship program accredited from 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 at UCHSC involves a multi-disciplinary team approach dedicated to 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, five surgeons have completed this two year fellowship program.
All potential applicants must complete the online application through the ASTS. The ASTS uses the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to conduct a match.
