Angie Korsun’s healthcare career began as an emergency room and critical care RN in New York City. She moved into Nursing management at several medical centers and teaching roles at City University. While at Mt. Sinai Medical center Angie had the opportunity to help start the first liver transplant program in New York State along with Dr. Charles Miller. That started Angie’s career in transplant which included solid organ and BMT.
The next 35 years journey involved starting, revamping and managing several transplant programs across the country. As a result, Angie has extensive knowledge and experience with all aspects of transplant strategic planning, operations, regulations, quality and fiscal management. During these last 35 years Angie has also managed provider practices, been involved in both the IP and OP aspects of transplant and related services including a stint as the Director of Nursing for Ambulatory Care Services at a major medical center.
Along the way Angie was also instrumental, along with Deedle Heckenkemper, in starting what is now the Transplant Administrators Committee of UNOS and the Transplant Management forum. Angie was also involved with the creation of the AST Transplant Administrators Community of Practice. Angie has worked on several UNOS committees and workgroups as well as consulted for other organizations.
