Slide30The Division of Nephrology offers multiple fellowship training programs.  These programs include:

Nephrology Fellowship Program

A three-year or longer fellowship is available for persons interested in clinical or bench research and a career in academic medicine. During clinical rotations, fellows have a wide variety of exposures including a dedicated in-patient nephrology ward service and consultative services. Furthermore, fellows participate in various out-patient clinics and dialysis settings. 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.

Renal Transplant Fellowship Training Program

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.
