Transplant Nephrology Fellowship
The transplant nephrology fellow will spend a total of 6 months on the inpatient service and 6 months in the outpatient setting. The inpatient service is a combined medical-surgical team in which the transplant fellow provides are for new transplant recipients in addition to patients admitted for post-transplant complications. Outpatient months include living donor and recipient evaluations, with two months protected for research. During these research months, the fellow works on a project of their interest under the direction of either transplant nephrologists, surgeons, or the HLA lab personnel, Didactic sessions include a lecture series with transplant dedicated lectures 1-2 times a month, transplant journal club in conjunction with our transplant surgery team monthly, weekly review of pathology with transplant pathologists, nephrologists, and surgeons, weekly grand rounds, and a structured HLA course. The transplant nephrology fellow works alongside transplant nephrologists in managing immediate post-transplant kidney recipients, but principally in the care of long-term kidney and kidney pancreas transplant recipients. He or she is an integral part of developing comprehensive care protocols involving cardiovascular, mineral bone disease, and malignancy screening and treatment.
