She also serves as a professor and the chief of the Division of Transplant Surgery for the Dell Medical School Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care at UT Austin. Turgeon joined UT Health Austin in 2019 and established the Abdominal Transplant Center in 2022. She has been recognized for changing the face of academic medicine in Austin through her leadership in founding the Kidney Transplant Program, Pancreas Transplant Program and Living Kidney Donor Program.
