The one-year Renal Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provides outstanding clinical and research experience in kidney transplantation, as well as the opportunity to develop expertise in pancreas transplantation.
Educational goals for the Renal Transplant Fellowship are to:
- Proficiently manage kidney transplant patients throughout the continuum of care, from the initial evaluation process through long-term follow-up care
- Prepare for a successful career in nephrology with an emphasis on kidney or pancreas transplantation or both
- Apply innovative, multidisciplinary protocols for living-donor and deceased-donor kidney transplantation
- Achieve eligibility for future United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) certification in kidney and pancreas transplantation
- Obtain expanded academic and research experience in the area of organ transplantation
Mayo Clinic's Renal Transplant Fellowship is accredited by the American Society of Transplantation through the Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Training Accreditation Program.
The American Board of Internal Medicine also supports the fellowship as a nonstandard (N+1) program for foreign medical graduates on J-1 exchange visas.
Successful completion of the Renal Transplant Fellowship should allow you to meet criteria set forth by UNOS for designation as a renal transplant physician and a pancreas transplant physician.
The Renal Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida began in 2015. We anticipate that one trainee will complete this program annually.
Mayo Clinic also has an established general Nephrology Fellowship at the Florida campus.
