Living Kidney Donor Testing Process

All donor testing is performed on an outpatient basis. The process can be completed at the donor's own pace. The first step a potential donor should take is to discuss the desire to donate with their primary care physician. They should forward a current history and physical exam results to the transplant office.

Potential donors must complete the following tests, along with a series of appointments. Please see the complete donor process for more details about tests and appointments.
