The transplant fellowship program at Henry Ford Hospital is structured to comply with the educational guidelines and objectives of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. The focus will be to provide a solid clinical training in the areas of liver and kidney transplantation, multiorgan procurement, vascular access surgery and clinical research opportunities with potential for laboratory research. The transplant fellowship is of 2 years duration and we will graduate one fellow every other year.
Transplant fellowship collaboration
Transplant surgery is a component of the multidisciplinary transplant programs offered at Henry Ford Hospital. There are distinct transplant nephrology and transplant hepatology programs with appropriate staffing. Collaboration is continuous from:
- Chemical dependency
- General and interventional radiology
- Histocompatibility and immunology
- Nutritional support
- Pulmonary medicine
- Transplant infectious disease
Hence, the fellow will have the opportunity to interact intimately with all these disciplines as he learns to manage patients before and after transplantation.
