Abdominal Transplant Surgery Fellowship | | Loyola Medicine

Abdominal Transplant Surgery Fellowship

The Abdominal Transplant Surgery Fellowship is a two-year program accredited for Liver and Kidney transplantation by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. Currently, the program trains one Fellow per year. The Fellowship include training in multi-organ deceased donor procurement, including donation after cardiac death. Training will also focus time for living donor nephrectomy both laparoscopic and robotic. In the near future the program will initiate living donor liver transplantation and include it in the fellowship training.  The educational program includes participation in transplant conferences, institutional, regional and national. We expect the fellows to participate in research projects with the transplant division and specialties associated, including Hepatology and Transplant Nephrology.
