Out of Town Transplant Patients

We understand that finding the best transplant option is stressful. For some patients, being listed for transplant at multiple facilities can help expand their options, and we can help.

Patients who are already on a primary waiting list for a transplant at another center outside of Maryland may also be able to be listed with the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). We can evaluate transplant patients without travel via our eVisit option.

eVisits for Transplant Evaluation: What to Expect

Toggle accordion item

Our eVisit program is an innovative way to increase access to transplantation. An eVisit lets us evaluate you conveniently from the comfort of your home.

Plan to reserve one hour for the meeting. We encourage you to have a caregiver join you, if possible. Here's how it works:

  1. Video technology lets you have a private, real-time conversation with a transplant surgeon and nurse coordinator at UMMC.
  2. You meet and interact with the providers via desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.
  3. The surgeon will discuss multiple listing and the waiting list process at UMMC.
  4. We encourage you to ask questions and get to know the surgeon and transplant nurse coordinator. The coordinator will become your main point of contact for additional questions. Meet the transplant nurse coordinators.

During the meeting, neither you nor the surgeon is committed to placing you on the waiting list or accepting a position on the transplant waiting list. We will also review your medical information from your home medical team to help you decide if listing at UMMC is right for you.
