Transplant Surgery Fellowship
The Nebraska Medical Center and our educational partner University of Nebraska Medical Center often host educational events throughout the Midwest to help provide the latest updates and education in transplantation care.
The two-year Transplant Surgery Fellowship at The Nebraska Medical Center, which is the hospital arm of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, is divided into two services. The transplant fellows spend the majority of their first year on the kidney/pancreas service. On the kidney/pancreas service, the fellows are responsible for the clinical organization of the transplant service. Other residents rotating with them include mid-level general surgical and urology residents. During the time spent on the kidney/pancreas service, the fellows are involved with multi-organ donor operations. Early in the fellowship, the fellows are given training in the performance of multi-organ procurement, which includes liver, kidneys, pancreas, and small bowel. As the transplant fellow demonstrates competence with this operation, they are gradually given more and more independence. The second year for the transplant fellowship is primarily spent on the liver/small bowel transplant service. The transplant fellow is directly responsible for all of the patients receiving both liver and intestinal transplants. It is a multi-disciplinary service and rounds are made with both the surgical and medical staff in attendance.
