About the Program
The UCMC Division of Nephrology and Hypertension offers fellowship training with a multidisciplinary approach across departmental lines, the common theme being an interest in kidney disease and renal physiology.
Our program provides fellows with a broad-based experience in all aspects of clinical nephrology, including kidney diseases, fluid-electrolyte and acid-base disorders, organ transplantation, hypertension and interventional nephrology.
The training program starts with an initial clinical year followed by a second year, which combines consolidation of clinical experience with an opportunity to participate in clinical or laboratory investigation. This approach is aimed at the majority of fellows who are planning for a career mainly in clinical nephrology or who have not yet decided on specific goals.
For those interested primarily in an academic career, additional years of research training may be arranged individually. During the second year, fellows have the opportunity to learn the essentials of preparing extramural grant requests (i.e., National Kidney Foundation).
Interested candidates should have completed a two-year ACGME accredited nephrology fellowship. To apply, candidates should use the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) to upload required information.
