ID Fellowship: ID Transplant Service
Many Infectious Diseases clinicians practice at hospitals that perform solid organ transplants or care for patient who have received transplants elsewhere, therefore it is important for all Infectious Diseases Fellows to receive training in managing infections and differentiating infection from rejection in transplant recipients. The Infectious Diseases transplant service sees patients with solid organ transplants at both, the Medical University Hospital and Ashley River Tower. The Infectious Diseases transplant service works closely with the heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, and small bowel transplant teams to coordinate care for these complicated patients.
The Medical University Hospital Infectious Diseases transplant clinic sees:
Patients prior to transplant for evaluation of potential infectious diseases that may complicate the transplant,
Patients after discharge from the hospital who were seen by the Infectious Diseases transplant service, and
Patients after their transplant who may have an infectious disease complication.
The Medical University Hospital Infectious Diseases Fellow sees patients in this clinic while on the Infectious Disease transplant service.
