Program Design

Rotations are generally 1 month long and are open for adjustment based on the resident’s wants and needs. July is reserved for orientation and a month of dedicated time for research, typically in October, allows for completion of a research project suitable for submission to national transplant meetings. Additionally, residents have the opportunity to see transplant experiences at another transplant center by completing a month of rotation at Duke.
