The Pediatric Nephrology fellowship program at the UAB has been in existence for over 20 years. We are housed in a Level 1 trauma center dedicated to the care of children. We accept 1 fellow per year who joins fellows from 17 other divisions.

The first year of fellowship concentrates on clinical training with intensive research training in the second and third years. Elective rotations consist of pathology, urology, and interventional nephrology. Available research collaborations across UAB encompass basic science, adult nephrology, and pediatric nephrology.

Additional program training resources include the possibility of obtaining a Masters in Public Health, a State-of-the-Art Simulation Center located within our institution, the UAB Institute of Personalized Medicine, the UAB Comprehensive Transplant Institute, Health Disparities Research Center, and the Pediatric and Infant Center for Acute Nephrology (PICAN). Upon program completion, our fellows are prepared clinically in all aspects of Pediatric Nephrology.
