Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

The UCSD Kidney Transplant Fellowship is accredited by the American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Nephrology. The Transplant Nephrology Fellowship provides specialty training in kidney transplantation and fulfills UNOS requirements for designation as a Transplant Physician at UNOS accredited transplant programs.

The Transplant Fellow is an integral member of the transplant team and receives broad, firsthand experience and training in all aspects of kidney transplantation, from evaluation prior to transplant to management of the recipient with a failing allograft. The fellow also is trained in the evaluation and management of multi-organ transplant recipients. Designated time is spent in pathology, the HLA laboratory and at Lifesharing, the local organ procurement organization. The fellow also receives training in handling of donor offers.

The fellowship provides the opportunity for electives and involvement in clinical and basic research. The Transplant Fellow attends national AST sponsored educational programs as well as national transplant and nephrology meetings.
