Clinical Facilities - Inpatient

The University of Toledo and the University Medical Center form the nucleus of the teaching experience in Nephrology. Begun in 1964, the Health Science Campus is one of ever constant growth. Presently the Medical Center has 319 beds, including 11 Intensive Care/Coronary Care beds and a six-chair inpatient dialysis center. The University of Toledo has a very active renal transplantation service performing approximately 70 transplants per year. The care of these patients is a collaboration between the tranplant surgeons and the Division of Nephrology.

Recently, The University of Toledo entered an affiliation agreement with local health system ProMedica. It is anticipated that ProMedica Toledo Hospital will be the major academic center of the University. This unique opportunity allows the trainees to participate in the care of individuals with a variety of nephrological conditions.

Furthermore, the Division offers nephrological care to a long-term acute care and rehabilitation center. 

Clinical Facilities - Outpatient

Outpatients are seen in the clinical offices of the Nephrology Division in the Health Center at the University of Toledo. Outpatient dialysis therapy, including Center hemodialysis and CAPD training, is provided at the nearby DaVita dialysis facility, located five minutes from the Main Campus. This is a state-of-the-art dialysis facility serves over 100 patients.

Research facilities

The Nephrology Division has access to sufficient research laboratory space located in the Health Education Building. In addition, research experience will be provided for collaboration with members of the Divisions of Endocrinology and Cardiology in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology.
