The UW Health Transplant Center is one of the few transplant centers in the country that has transplanted more than 12,000 kidneys. This milestone shows the center’s incredible expertise and leadership in kidney transplantation according to Dr. Dixon Kaufman, medical director, UW Health Transplant Center, and professor of surgery, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. “When you think about the size of our program compared to some on the West Coast or the East Coast, it’s especially impressive to say we are one of the first in the nation to reach this number of kidney transplants,” he said. “It shows our level of excellence and teamwork.” The UW Health Kidney Transplant Program began with its first adult kidney transplant in 1966, performing its first pediatric kidney transplant a year later in 1967.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UW Health (Madison, WI) in Apr 2022


    Three interviews over the course of a month. One with HR - very brief, one with the lead of department - also very brief, and one with actual team. The team interview was multiple interviews with multiple team members. It took about 4 hours.
