Our team is led by Dr. Patrick Healey, division chief of Transplantation, and Dr. Ruth McDonald, medical director of Solid Organ Transplant. Our kidney specialists (nephrologists) are experts in kidney disease in children. They publish findings in medical journals around the world. Our transplant providers lead and participate in regional and national organizations and research programs focused on kidney disease in children.
We are committed to recruiting and retaining the best transplant specialists. As a teaching hospital, we train tomorrow’s doctors and researchers in children’s kidney disorders. Our pediatric nephrology fellowship program – one of a handful in the United States – attracts the best and brightest young doctors from around the world.
