A Message from the Division Chief


Training future generations of transplant surgeons has always been and remains one of the most important missions of the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute. While we are proud of the rich history of the program with regards to training, we continue to look forward to the future of transplant training and continually work to provide the best possible educational experience for our fellows.

The fellowship program is highly structured with planned rotations in all areas of transplant, emphasis on hands-on training, opportunities for clinical research, and regular didactic teaching sessions in a classroom and surgical wet lab. The end result is one of the most comprehensive training experiences available in the field.

The program and faculty is committed to training fellows to be competent transplant surgeons and helping them to find suitable opportunities after their fellowship to begin their careers.
