The one-year Advanced Lung Disease and Lung Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offers a thorough, advanced education in all aspects of transplant pulmonary medicine.
Our goal is to train superior academic transplant pulmonologists in the pathophysiological mechanisms, clinical manifestations, and management of advanced lung disease with the cultivation of expert abilities in all phases of lung transplant clinical care.
You will receive training from transplant supportive services in pertinent areas such as lung pathology, tissue typing, transplant infectious disease, ECMO, and advanced heart and lung disease specialist to emerge eligible for UNOS primary physician certification and independent lung transplant practice.
Highlights of the program include:
A carefully designed curriculum that provides a balance of pre-transplant evaluation, selection, and care of transplant candidates, donor evaluation and perioperative management of transplant recipients, and post-transplant management
Academic research opportunities in patient-oriented research in lung transplant and advanced lung disease
Our expert quality improvement team will ensure graduates are prepared for CMS QAPI regulatory expectations
