What to Expect from the Transplant Program

At UR Medicine, our approach to care is guided by the biopsychosocial model, which was founded here at the University of Rochester and has shaped care across the country.

The biopsychosocial model means that we treat the whole patient. We believe you’re more than your illness — you’re an individual. Your physical health is just one piece of the puzzle. Many other factors affect your health, including where you live, your mental health, and your family and social support, for example.

We consider all of these elements and personalize your treatment based on what is best for you. This includes providing a psychiatrist and social worker who will ensure that your mental and emotional health are being cared for.
