Flinders Medical Centre
Location: Flinders Drive, Bedford Park, SA
The SA Liver Transplant Unit based at Flinders Medical Centre has been involved in liver transplant training for more than a decade.
Flinders Medical Centre performs about 20 to 25 cases of liver transplants a year and closer to 25 in recent years. The liver transplant training is usually performed in conjunction with ANZHPB training. Most years, we have a ANZHPB fellow involved in HPB and Liver transplant work and at the same time able to qualify the number requirement for liver transplant trainee requirement.

Transplant and donor numbers per year:

Opportunities on the Unit:
Excellent academic approach and strongly consultant delivered service with much hands-on training. For those trainees who wish to be transplant-focussed, there is an opportunity to do renal transplant work across town as well. There are abundant research opportunities at FMC.
