About Dr. Kitchens

Dr. Kitchens joined the team in 2016. After graduating from Harvard Medical School with honors, Dr. Kitchens continued his general surgical training at Massachusetts General Hospital.

He finished his surgical training at MGH, then returned to Emory to complete a clinical fellowship in abdominal transplant surgery. Throughout his training years, Dr. Kitchen received a variety of awards recognizing the quality of his research efforts, including three consecutive Young Investigator Awards from the American Transplant Congress and two Young Innovator Awards at Annual Scientific Exchange meetings of the American Society of Transplantation.
