UBC Abdominal Organ Transplant Fellowship

Welcome to our Abdominal Organ Transplant Fellowship!

The University of British Columbia has a rich history in the fields of transplantation and hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgery, with both HPB surgeons and urologists contributing to our local transplantation culture. We have high surgical volumes in both kidney transplantation, liver transplantation, and HPB surgery, along with a rich, collegial clinical and academic environment ideally suited for high-level transplantation training. We now offer both an AHPBA-accredited HPB surgical oncology track and a combined ASTS-accredited abdominal transplantation surgery track. We will be accepting 1 fellow per year for our ASTS program, either General Surgery or Urology trained and certified.

During your fellowship training, you will be immersed in all aspects of kidney, pancreas, and liver transplantation along with ongoing exposure to deceased donor organ procurement, living donor nephrectomy, and HPB surgery. As your training progresses, there will be opportunities to tailor your clinical and academic experiences to your own specific interests to help assist with post-fellowship job opportunities. In addition to an outstanding operative experience, your knowledge will be further enhanced through participation in a robust academic curriculum of teaching seminars and in-depth training in the pre- and postoperative management of these complex patients in inpatient and outpatient settings. 

We will also provide opportunities to participate in both clinical and basic science research, with hope that you will present any work you are involved with at major transplantation conferences. We are excited to train the future generation of transplant surgeons and welcome the opportunity to get to know you further should you be interested in this experience.
