About the Program

The University Of Cincinnati is proud to offer a 2-year ACGME accredited Nephrology Fellowship that focuses on exceptional training, educational value, and experience with an emphasis on WORK-LIFE BALANCE:

  • All of the inpatient services function as healthcare teams with both the Nephrologists and Nurse-practitioners enhancing educational value and also reducing service needs & workload for our fellows
  • Nightly call is by beeper at home after 6 PM on all nights including weekends - Fellows do not come in after 6 PM
  • Travel stipend offered to Fellowship applicants to help defray interview cost
  • Scholarly activities are customizable to meet the career needs of our fellows (e.g., Research conferences, Hemodialysis & Peritoneal Dialysis training, Business of nephrology)
  • A multitude of research opportunities are supported by the Division
  • Enhanced training pathways in Transplantation and elective experience in Interventional Nephrology
  • Our program has a 100% track record in job placements of fellows’ choice after fellowship

 

The Program provides fellows with a broad-based experience in all aspects of clinical nephrology including kidney diseases, hypertension, fluid-electrolyte and acid-base disorders (and organ transplantation and interventional nephrology as noted above). The initial clinical year is followed by a second year, which combines consolidation of clinical experience with an opportunity to participate in clinical or laboratory investigation.

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).
