Course summary


This part-time, online programme is part of the School of Medicine postgraduate portfolio. It has been developed specifically for surgeons/clinicians who are working in the specialist arena of renal transplantation.

The programme provides the opportunity for candidates to work with international colleagues under the leadership of transplant surgeons, clinicians and scientists based in expert clinical centres from around the UK. This course focuses on renal (adult and paediatric) and pancreatic transplantation and is delivered by experienced transplant clinicians from various UK and reputable overseas transplant centres to enhance the exposure of the candidates to different clinical experience and practice. The course is designed to develop knowledge and understanding of the clinical sciences underpinning transplantation and the management of every stage in the recipient and donor journey, both pre and post-surgery. All our teaching is research-connected, mapped to the current and rapidly evolving evidence base in this exciting specialty. The philosophy is for us to equip you with the knowledge, skills and attributes, underpinned by the evidence base to develop and enhance the care of patients.

The course is aimed at transplant surgeons, nephrologists and urologists. Prior experience is essential in these clinical specialties prior to application. It is offered wholly online through the University Virtual Learning Environment, allowing access to candidates globally. The pathway has been developed to align with the recent British Transplant Society and the British Renal Society Guidelines.

This programme emphasises the practical implementation of clinical transplantation and fosters analysis, critical questioning and reasoning of the current practice, and compares it with the current best available scientific evidence. The candidates will be encouraged to formalise a treatment plan for routine, difficult and complex clinical cases. The most ambitiously equipped electronic library (e-library) of the University of Liverpool provides access to key scientific papers and textbooks covering a wide range of topics in transplantation.

Career prospects
