This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3.5 or 7 credit hours.

The specific skills involve learning detailed aspects of renal, hepatic and pancreatic replacement, including indications, selection of donors and recipients, histocompatibility testing, preoperative care, and complications. Conferences will be held daily in the form of transplantation rounds conducted each afternoon with the course coordinator.
