The IU School of Medicine Department of Surgery’s Division of Transplant Surgery offers this two-year fellowship program in abdominal transplantation. The emphasis of training is clinical with an orientation toward academic practice. Fellows are prepared to be competent, independent practitioners in transplantation with knowledge in all solid organs and are trained to assess patients for transplantation, manage patients intra-operatively and care for the immunosuppressed patient post-operatively.
This is one of a small group of programs in the United States that has the necessary volume of patients to train fellows in all organ systems. This fellowship program is accredited by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and has approval to train three fellows every two years.
