The Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Training Accreditation Program is charged with accrediting institutions that have developed programs to provide specialty transplant nephrology training. As a result of the Program’s approval by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), graduates of accredited transplant nephrology fellowship programs are qualified to head UNOS approved renal transplant programs. The goal of this Program is to provide a basis for the standardization of transplant training and a method of uniform documentation of education for those who wish to lead renal transplant programs.
