In brief: See below
Evaluation for kidney transplant is done by the transplant team at most institutions.
These may include a transplant coordinator, the surgeon, the nephrologist, social worker.They all will evaluate your condition and educate you about kidney transplant.They may not do it all on the same day. They present their findings to a transplant committee.

In brief: Tests
There are many blood tests.
There is also a review of your complete medical history and possible testing of your heart, lungs & vascular system. Almost everyone gets some type of xrays like chest xray & ultrasound of kidneys. Some need ct scans of the chest or abdomen. There is a psycological evaluation and a social support evaluation as well. You meet multiple dr, nurses and healthcare people.
