Renal Transplant Fellowship (Minnesota)
The Renal Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., provides outstanding clinical and research experience in kidney transplantation, as well as the opportunity to develop expertise in pancreas transplantation.
Educational goals for the Renal Transplant Fellowship are to:
- Proficiently manage kidney transplant patients throughout the continuum of care, from the initial evaluation process through long-term follow-up care
- Prepare for a successful career in nephrology with an emphasis on kidney and/or pancreas transplantation
- Apply innovative, multidisciplinary protocols for living and deceased donor kidney transplantation
- Achieve eligibility for future United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) certification in kidney and pancreas transplantation
- Obtain expanded academic and research experience in the area of organ transplantation
Mayo Clinic's Renal Transplant Fellowship is accredited by the American Society of Transplantation through the Adult Renal Transplant Fellowship Training Accreditation Program Committee.
The American Board of Internal Medicine also supports the fellowship as a non-standard (N+1) program for foreign medical graduates on J-1 exchange visas.
Successful completion of the fellowship should allow you to meet criteria set forth by UNOS for designation as a renal transplant physician and a pancreas transplant physician.
This fellowship has been in existence at Mayo Clinic since 2000. One fellowship position is available each academic year.
