Slide21The Clinical Fellowship Training Program is a two year training program with the option of a third year of research offered by the Division of Nephrology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The Division of Nephrology accepts up to 7 Fellows a year. Two to three-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.
