The Division of Organ Transplantation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine offers an ASTS-accredited, two-year multi-organ transplant fellowship approved for liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation. Northwestern provides an ideal environment for fellows with one of the largest clinical programs in the United States, a significant research focus, participation in innovative transplant techniques, and a location in the heart of urban Chicago. This provides our fellows with as much, or more, operative experience than any other national program in an energetic environment.
Fellows receive training in both adult and pediatric kidney and liver transplantation, including living donor liver transplantation. Fellows also acquire extensive laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy experience, with over 1,000 procedures completed at Northwestern annually. Training also includes exposure to: pancreas and islet cell transplantation, intestinal transplantation, hepatobiliary surgery, and vascular access training. Fellows gain expertise in patient and immunosuppressive management at a pioneering site for steroid-free regimens, with a growing immune-monitoring facility and increasing innovative research in tolerance induction.
