Transplant Surgery Fellowship

Program Overview

The Transplant Surgery Division at Thomas Jefferson University is proud to offer a two-year Kidney Transplant Surgery Fellowship accredited by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS). One fellow per year is trained to become an expert and leader in the management of kidney transplant populations. Operative experience with our busy Transplant Surgery Service is promoted during both years.

Interested candidates must intend to complete a five-year categorical general surgery training program prior to enrollment. Information can be obtained by contacting the Program Director, at (215) 955-8920.
