Kidney Transplant Clinical Fellowship Program

One year duration

The rationale for this funded clinical fellowship is that advanced training beyond the two-year nephrology fellowship is required to care for kidney transplant recipients. The fellow will perform supervised care for kidney transplant and kidney-pancreas transplant recipient inpatients and outpatients, at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In addition, the fellow will rotate on services of transplant infectious diseases, radiology, tissue typing laboratory, renal pathology and observation of organ retrieval and transplant surgery. There will be opportunity to participate in either bench or clinical research during the fellowship program. Specific elective time of up to 3 months is offered. There are multiple formal educational rounds offered related to transplantation that the fellow will participate in.
