Overview of Clinical Service

The Transplant Surgical Fellow is responsible for leading each clinical team under the direct guidance of the transplant surgeon and a transplant nephrologist or hepatologist, each of whom typically spends one week on the service at a time. In turn, the transplant fellow supervises the house staff, provides daily teaching, and coordinates patient care with nursing staff and consultant services.
