Roles & Responsibilities:
This specialized float position will be a part of the Recanati/Miller Transplant Institute (RMTI) and will provide psychosocial services to adult liver and kidney transplant patients at offsite practices.

The caseload will be made up of patients who will have unique challenges based on their varied geographic locations.
