Transplant Anesthesiology Fellowship Program

The Transplant Anesthesiology Fellowship Program is complemented by one of the most successful transplantation programs in the country. The transplant experience includes cadaveric kidney, pancreas, liver, lung and heart transplantation, as well as a living, related-kidney program. Most patients have multisystem dysfunction requiring complex perioperative care. The transplant anesthesia fellow and faculty members provide preoperative consultation, recommend diagnostic evaluation and provide intraoperative and postoperative care. Participation in the weekly multidisciplinary transplant committee meeting is an integral part of training. While most of our fellows spend a total of one year for training, it is possible to extend the fellowship for an additional year for more extensive research training.
