Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

The Nephrology Transplant program is designed for nephrology fellows who have completed training in general nephrology and wish to pursue additional training in transplant nephrology.  The goals of the program are to give the transplant fellow training and experience in end-stage renal disease, training in the selection of appropriate transplant recipients and donors, clinical experience in the immediate and long term care of the transplant recipient, and training in the performance of renal transplant biopsies along with emphasis on the management of immunosuppressive agents and the evaluation or renal transplant dysfunction.

The Nephrology Transplant Fellowship program consists of:

  • Transplant in-patient rotation – 6 months
  • Outpatient transplant clinic - minimum 10 months
  • HLA lab – 1 month
  • Solid organ transplant consult - minimum 2 weeks
  • Research – 4 months

The nephrology transplant fellow will be the lead team member responsible for the inpatient transplant patients admitted to the transplant nephrology service. He/she will supervise 2 mid-level providers and work closely with the first year nephrology fellow to provide clinical care of the patients on inpatient and outpatient services. The nephrology transplant fellow will be supervised by the inpatient Transplant Nephrology Faculty while on inpatient service for 6 months of the training year. The fellow is expected to see at least 30 new kidney transplant patients for short term and 30 kidney transplant recipients for long term follow-up as set up in the guidelines by AST.

The training is supervised by 6 Transplant Nephrology faculty at Emory University School of Medicine and Emory Transplant Center. The fellow will have opportunities to participate in research projects with Emory Transplant Center.
