The Baylor College of Medicine Renal Transplant Fellowship Program is a two-year non-ACGME accredited program, which is approved by the Texas Medical Board and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. Our program provides experience primarily at St. Luke's Cooley Transplant Center.

There is extensive hands-on experience in all aspects of the management of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) surgical patients. Operative experience will be gained in transplant surgery, open nephrectomy as well as laparoscopic nephrectomy for living donors. In 2015 the busy program transplanted 149 kidneys.
