Transplant Nephrology

The Transplant Nephrology program is integrated into both the Section of Nephrology at Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Transplantation Center (YNHTC).

Our goal is to provide optimal access to kidney transplantation for all individuals for whom this is the best option.

To achieve this objective, in addition to the comprehensive transplant related services, we also:
  • Expedite donor and recipient evaluation for patients not yet on dialysis.
  • Perform internal exchanges and participate in two national exchange programs for recipient who have medically suitable donors willing to consider this option.
  • Strive to have a first visit within four weeks of initial referral.
  • Advocate for patients who have exhausted dialysis access to receive emergency transplant listing status.
  • Provide a medical home for our patients with open access to clinic on an urgent basis.

YNHTC serves patients from Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, throughout the country, and beyond.
