Duke was one of the first institutions in the country to successfully establish a kidney transplant program in 1965. Since then, Duke's transplantation programs have achieved many more national and regional milestones, including the state's first successful liver, heart, hand, and abdominal wall transplants. Annually DUH performs over 400 solid organ transplants including heart, intestine, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, and vascularized composite tissue transplants in pediatric and adult recipients. Clinical pharmacy services are provided to all of the organ groups via a multidisciplinary approach.
The solid organ transplant residency is a specialized program consisting of 12 months of training in various transplant settings. Due to the diverse experiences at DUH, the residency year is tailored to adapt to the needs and interests of the individual resident while still producing a clinical pharmacist with the knowledge required to care for a solid organ transplant recipient.
