The AST-accredited transplant nephrology fellowship program at The University of Colorado offers a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of transplant nephrology for physicians who have satisfied their ACGME general nephrology clinical training obligations. Both one-year (clinical) and two-year (research track) training options are available. We are a high-volume transplant center, performing over 300 kidney and kidney/pancreas transplants per year.
The transplant fellowship year involves equal time spent in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Transplant nephrology fellows gain experience working closely with transplant nephrology faculty, surgeons, pharmacists, social workers, and nurses to provide exceptional care to our patients. Transplant nephrology fellows can expect to gain experience in all pertinent areas of clinical transplant nephrology including pre-transplant donor and recipient evaluation and selection, post-operative immunosuppression management, evaluation and management of graft dysfunction, desensitization, and paired exchange. Additional aspects of the training program include:
Regularly scheduled journal clubs, transplant case conferences, and transplant pathology conferences
Scheduled didactic sessions covering, but not limited to, the AST-recommended education curriculum topics.
Patient-specific bedside teaching during daily multidisciplinary rounds
Participation in weekly multidisciplinary donor, waitlist, and recipient selection meetings
Optional general nephrology educational conferences including didactic lectures, journal clubs, case conferences, and pathology conferences
