Program Composition

Drs. Shaked and Olthoff operatingThe first year clinical fellows rotate every other month between the liver and kidney/pancreas services. During these rotations, the fellows cover all transplant procedures, manage patients in the intensive care units and the floor, and attend the pre-transplant and post-transplant clinics. The fellows gain experience in both recipient and living donor evaluations and patient selection. They will acquire extensive knowledge in donor procurements, kidney, liver and pancreas transplantation, and gain experience in living donor laparascopic nephrectomy techniques, living donor and split liver transplantation, and clinical islet cell transplantation.

There is also a significant amount of non-transplant surgery that involves both the fellow and senior resident, such as vascular access, hepatobiliary procedures, and general surgery on transplant patients. The transplant team at HUP also covers kidney and liver transplantation at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The transplant fellow participates in and eventually independently performs procurements of liver, kidney and pancreas grafts. They will be fully trained in donor management and the policies of the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS).

A more detailed description of our fellowship can be found in this attached file.
