Fellowship Programs - Nephrology
Fellowship training is offered by the Division of Nephrology for individuals with an M.D. degree. The Nephrology Fellowship Program is basically a two year training program which provides training in both the clinical and basic sciences. This is designed to meet the requirements for certification of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Fellows intent on an academic career will be encouraged to spend an additional third year for research training.
Fellows graduating from this program will have a full competence in the range of inpatient dialysis techniques including CAPD, IPD, hemodialysis, hemofiltration, continuous A-V hemofiltration and SCUF. Furthermore, they will be proficient at the technique of needle biopsy of the kidney, peritoneal catheter insertion and temporary access procedures for hemodialysis. The clinical exposure for each fellow will encompass a wide range of consultative nephrology including acid-base electrolyte disorders, glomerulonephritis, hypertension, acute and chronic renal failure, and management of kidney transplant patients.
