Transplant Nephrology Fellowship

The kidney transplantation program at NYU Langone Transplant Institute caters to a diverse population of patients from the New York area and across the nation who have chronic kidney disease (CKD).

We perform approximately 350 kidney transplants annually and provide comprehensive transplant services to patients who have CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). These services include evaluation for kidney transplant candidacy, preparation for transplant and follow-up care for those on the waiting list, and acute and ambulatory post-transplant care.

Our one-year transplant nephrology fellowship program provides experience and training in all aspects of kidney transplantation. As a fellow, you manage kidney and dual-organ transplant recipients—including liver–kidney, kidney–pancreas, heart–kidney, and lung–kidney—under the supervision of our transplant nephrologists and surgeons, who collaborate to provide outstanding patient care. We accept one candidate each year into the fellowship program.

In our program, you receive in-depth training in transplant immunology, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing and cross-match testing, kidney allocation policy, and renal allograft pathology, and become skilled in performing renal allograft biopsies. You also gain experience in the innovative solutions we offer high-risk transplant patients, including ABO-incompatible transplants, HLA-incompatible transplants, and kidney paired donation protocols. This experience helps you build skills and expertise in techniques offered only at a handful of centers across the country.

Additionally, you have the opportunity to contribute to and participate in ongoing clinical research at the Transplant Institute. If you choose, you may also participate in translational and basic science research in immunology and transplantation in the context of the broader NYU Grossman School of Medicine community.


Candidates for this fellowship must have completed or be in the process of completing an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited nephrology fellowship program.
