The program was initially accredited in 1999 and reaccredited in March 2003, May 2007, November 2012, and recently reaccredited in 2015 by the American Society of Transplant (AST). In order to participate in the Nephrology Transplant program individuals must be board eligible or board certified nephrologists.
