Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

Our Transplant Nephrology Fellowship, under the leadership of Lorenzo Gallon, MD, Medical Director of our Kidney Transplant Program, provides the opportunity to gain knowledge, procedural skills, interpersonal skills, professionalism, and practical experience to become an independent and highly qualified transplant nephrologist. Fellows care for patients with a wide range of illnesses and in all stages of illness. Daily teaching rounds, inpatient and outpatient service, and several weekly conferences are an integral part of fellow training. Faculty members from Organ Transplantation and Nephrology divisions serve as mentors and role models in clinical care, professionalism and research. Fellows are evaluated on these qualities at the end of each rotation period. Fellows completing the program will be fully UNOS-certified for transplant Nephrology.

The fellowship consists of evaluating and managing kidney transplant candidates and recipients. The pre- and post-transplant management of kidney transplant candidates and the immediate post-operative management are a major focus of training. The fellow attends a required number of deceased donor procedures, kidney donor procedures, and other relevant surgical procedures in order to gain a thorough understanding of surgical issues related to care of kidney transplant recipients and allow UNOS certification.
