​Transplant Fellowship Application Procedure

Applications for transplant fellowships will be accepted throughout the year. All applicants must have completed all of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) steps, including Step 3 in order to be eligible for consideration.

Candidates for clinical fellowships in multi-organ transplants should be board eligible or certified in general surgery.

The Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute participates in the annual Abdominal Transplant Surgery Fellowship Match run by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The match is performed one year prior to the beginning of the fellowship, usually in June. Details of the match can be obtained at the NRMP website. Candidates will need to register with the NRMP in order to participate in the match.

In accordance with the NRMP Match Rank List deadline, the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute interviews prospective fellow candidates in March, April, and May.

A letter of inquiry, along with curriculum vitae, should be addressed to:
