The Division of Nephrology at the University of Washington offers an accredited training program in transplant nephrology. Completion of this fellowship will provide the individual with the qualifications to be a UNOS-approved medical director of a kidney transplant program. One transplant fellow is accepted per year; the fellowship duration is one year.
The goal of the University of Washington transplant nephrology program is to provide in-depth experience in transplant patient care associated with a comprehensive didactic program. Inpatient and outpatient care will include post operative management of kidney and kidney/pancreas recipients, participation in liver, lung and heart transplant consultation and outpatient evaluation of post transplant recipients, living donors and recipient candidates. Lectures will be provided by basic and clinical scientists on immunology, pharmacology, obstetrics, diabetes, metabolic bone disease and infectious disease topics to be included along with sessions on post operative and maintenance transplant care.
