Welcome to the Cleveland Clinic Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Program

Why should you choose Cleveland Clinic Florida as your training institution? The answer is simple: what you learn early on in your career will shape forever your future career.

The Cleveland Clinic Florida Kidney Transplant Treatment Program, we perform between 150-200 kidney transplants annually. We strongly believe that the ideal training program should provide the right mix of education, clinical volume, academic complexity and innovation.

Our fellowship program consists of a comprehensive curriculum in pre-kidney transplant evaluations, care of patients’ post- kidney transplant (inpatient and outpatient setting). Our large volume kidney transplant program allows training in living donor evaluations and follow ups, along with skilled development in histocompatibility and immunosuppression management.

Our high volume kidney transplant program continues to grow every year and you will be exposed to a variety of patients with not only renal failure but patients with a multitude of medical issues that needs to be sorted through.

Every day we strive to innovate and increase access to transplantation by expanding the donor pool. We continue to promote our living donor program by encouraging recipients to identify living donor ambassadors that can promote donation and help them identify potential donors.

In addition, we actively participate in paired exchange programs, which further increased our Living Donor Kidney Transplant volumes.

At the Cleveland Clinic, we educate our fellows to become leaders in the field of transplantation by never accepting the status quo and by embracing relentless innovation. Our goal is to attract the finest candidates.
