NP or PA Abdominal Organ Transplant Fellowship

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences offers a one-year postgraduate Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant Abdominal Organ Transplant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona. The fellowship is intended to prepare you for a career in one of several disciplines within the growing field of transplantation.

The comprehensive educational curriculum is designed to provide you with specialty training in the medical and surgical aspects of liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation. Mastery of the principles of immunosuppression — a core element of all transplant disciplines — is a major goal and expectation of the program.

You work directly with the renowned faculty of distinguished physicians and surgeons, as well as with other highly recognized, specialized and dedicated physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs).

In addition to the clinical curriculum, you participate in regularly scheduled academic conferences, attend educational lectures and have the opportunity to perform scholarly research with the potential for publication in academic journals.

Upon graduation, you receive a certificate from Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences documenting successful completion of the program, which indicates demonstration of all expected competencies. Fellows completing the program are expected to be highly competitive candidates for employment at institutions performing organ transplantation in one of several potential disciplines.
