Wake Forest School of Medicine is seeking a BC/BE transplant Nephrologist to join our kidney/pancreas transplant program.
Candidates should be graduates of an AST-approved transplant medicine fellowship and will join five surgeons and two nephrologists at the Wake Forest Abdominal Transplant Program. It is among the nation’s most active and successful centers.
Our Program Highlights
We perform between 160 and 180 transplants annually and are among the top 30 most active kidney and pancreas transplant programs in the U.S.
Our extensive experience translates to better care and outcomes for you. Our patients receive a transplant more quickly than at other centers in the state or region. We participate in nearly all insurance plans, and several have designated Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in their Centers of Excellence for Transplant.
We often care for “high risk” patients, including those with coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, diabetes, morbid obesity, and adequately controlled chronic viral infections such as HIV and hepatitis C.
We have a successful track record transplanting patients who have been refused at other centers as well as patients who have had one or more previous transplants.
The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients offers information on our program as compared to other kidney and pancreas transplant programs regionally and nationally. They include information about the number of patients on our waiting list, the number of patients being cared for by our program, as well as patient outcome data.
Our Preferred Credentials
- Prospective candidates will have strong clinical skills; interest in education and clinical research are encouraged.
- Position is open rank and offers an excellent salary commensurate with experience.
- Candidates should send their CV with two letters of reference when applying.
