Our mission is to train the future leaders in nephrology. Whether our trainees provide care for nephrology patients, perform clinical or laboratory bench research or become academic professors, they will be the leaders in their respective areas. The
fellowship will provide the tools needed to chart the future of our specialty, with a focus on nurturing and educating the next generation of nephrologists.
Most of our program graduates go on to full-time, highly successful careers in academic medicine. Of the 125 fellows who have completed their renal training since 1973, 70 are academic physicians, of which 17 are full professors, 14 are associate professors, 23 are assistant professors, 10 are nephrology division chiefs, 2 are vice-chairpersons and 3 are associate deans.
