Advancing patient health through nationally recognized kidney care, world-class research, and rigorous training. 

The University of Alabama at Birmingham Division of Nephrology is dedicated to the treatment of kidney disease and injury. We enhance patient experiences by providing compassionate care through physicians and scientists who are experts in renal treatment and research.


Our scientists lead the field in investigating acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, cardio-renal physiology, diabetic nephropathy, glomerular diseases, polycystic kidney disease and many other renal conditions.


Our training programs span the range from pre-doctoral investigation, to residency, to clinical and post-doctoral fellowships. We are proud of our commitment to the next generation of kidney specialists.
