Introduction to Fellowship Program
I. Nephrology Fellowship Program
Two to three first-year fellowship positions are offered annually. A two-year clinical fellowship satisfies the requirements for application to ABIM subspecialty certification in Nephrology. A three-year or longer fellowship is available for persons interested in clinical or bench research and a career in academic medicine. During their clinical rotations, fellows participate actively in the in-patient and consultative services and in various out-patient clinics of the Division.
Research opportunities for fellows are available in a variety of laboratories throughout the Medical Center. Faculty mentors may be based in Nephrology or other clinical or basic science divisions or departments. Research experiences are supported by NIH training grants.
One Renal Transplant Fellowship Position is offered each academic year to an individual interested in a more extensive exposure to solid organ transplantation. The successful completion of at least two years of general nephrology fellowship training is required.
The Division of Nephrology offers research opportunities to Nephrology fellows as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows not affiliated with the clinical fellowship program. The Nephrology Division has an NRSA T32 Training grant to help support postdoctoral fellows in their pursuits of kidney related research.
The Division of Nephrology offers a one-year fellowship position as a PGY-6 to an individual interested in an academic career in interventional nephrology.
