Transplant referrals are made by health care professionals. You may also download the physician referral form to give to your primary care physician or gastroenterologist for completion. Once your referral has been forwarded to our center, you will be processed for financial clearance.

Once cleared you will be given an appointment to meet with the surgeon and your pre-transplant coordinator.

We invite you to take the mandatory class. After completing the class, please download the test, complete, and bring to your first appointment. If you do not complete the class and test prior to your visit, you will be required to attend a scheduled class appointment.

Please take the time to review the following informative documents that will be discussed with you at your first appointment.

  • Referral Form
  • Checklist for Referral
  • Criteria for Intestinal and Multivisceral Transplantation
  • Consent Package: Informed Consent, High Risk Consent, SRTR data, Multiple Wait List Brochure
  • Mandatory Class and Class Test
  • Video Evaluation (HOTLINK)
  • Preparing for the Procedure

Please view the checklist and have your physician complete the referral form. Once you have completed all of the forms and collected the necessary medical records, you may e-mail the information to MTILiverinfo@med.miami.edu, fax it to 305-355-5790, or mail to:

Miami Transplant Institute Liver/GI Referral Area
1801 NW 9th Avenue, Third Floor
Miami, FL 33136

How long will I have to wait for an appointment after my complete referral is received?

This varies depending upon your insurance plan. If your carrier is contracted with the University of Miami Health System and Jackson Health System, an MTI representative will contact you to go over the referral and issue an appointment and class date. If your insurance carrier is not contracted with MTI, your referral will need approval from the MTI Finance Team before making an appointment.
