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 San Francisco Match (SF Match). The match is performed one year prior to the beginning of the fellowship, usually in June. We interview prospective fellow candidates in March, April and May. Candidates will need to register with the SF Match in order to participate. Details can be obtained at the SF Match website.
