About the Program
The Division of Nephrology at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center offers a one-year AST-accredited Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Position each academic year.
The University of Cincinnati Transplant Program has been a national leader in organ transplantation for over 45 years, with a very active Kidney and Kidney-Pancreas Transplant Program. The Transplant Program is currently staffed by four transplant nephrologists, six transplant surgeons and the full complement of ancillary professionals, including pharmacists, social workers and transplant immunology personnel.
Our overall goal is to mold the Transplant Fellow into an outstanding clinician with experience that extends all the way from a strong clinical base to state-of-the-art research protocols, especially in the context of antibody-mediated rejection and desensitization.
Clinical Training and Education
The Transplant Fellowship provides a broad-based experience in all aspects of kidney transplantation, including inpatient (at least six months) and outpatient care of transplant patients, performance of renal allograft biopsies and mandatory training in pathology, immunology, tissue typing, and immunosuppressive protocols. The Transplant Fellow plays an integral part in the care of kidney and kidney-pancreas transplant recipients. We have an integrated Transplant Nephrology and Transplant Surgery Program, with multidisciplinary patient rounds every day. The Transplant Fellow is an essential part of every aspect of decision making and, more importantly, the learning process.
In addition to bedside teaching, the fellow will participate in a year-long transplant-specific core curriculum series and also attend journal clubs and grand rounds presentations. The fellow will also be expected to develop a research project and actively participate in ongoing clinical trials.
To apply, candidates should send the Program Coordinator a copy of his/her CV, USMLE scores and medical school diploma, along with three letters of recommendation, including one from the Fellowship Director.
