Renal Transplant Fellowship

Renal Transplant Fellowship

Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, is a leading center for kidney and pancreas transplantation, performing more than 200+ kidney transplants annually. Emphasis is placed on overcoming barriers to transplantation while optimizing patient and allograft survival.

Active clinical programs in the transplant center include:

  • Living-donor and deceased-donor kidney transplantation
  • Pancreas transplantation
  • HIV positive transplantation
  • Paired kidney donor program

Mayo Clinic's Kidney-Pancreas Transplant Program involves a multidisciplinary team consisting of transplant nephrologists, transplant surgeons, mid-level providers, and other allied health professionals, in addition to general nephrology fellowship trainees. The renal transplant fellow is an integral part of this team.
