Welcome from the Program Director

             

              


Welcome to the Transplant Infectious Diseases (TID) Fellowship training program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).  The Division of Infectious Diseases offers a subspecialized, one-year fellowship training in TID for fellows who have completed their general infectious diseases fellowship training and are interested in developing expertise in infections in solid organ transplant recipients.

UPMC is one of the most recognized and experienced medical centers in the world for solid organ transplantation. Over the last 30 years, UPMC transplant services have evolved to include longstanding programs in heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, intestinal and multivisceral transplantation. In 2013, UPMC Cardiothoracic Transplant program celebrated its 3000th transplant, only the second transplant program in the world to achieve this milestone. As for abdominal transplantations, through the mission of Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute, more types of complex and combined abdominal transplant procedures have been done than at any other institution.

Our specialized TID group is one of the largest and most established groups in the nation. The TID fellows will have the opportunity to work closely with our 6 full-time TID faculty that round solely on the TID services. We are confident that the expertise the TID fellow gets in our program will allow him/her to become an expert in the TID field.

Thank you for your interest in our TID program. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions you may have.

 

Sincerely,


Rima Abdel-Massih
