The Nephrology Fellowship is a two-year ACGME-accredited subspecialty program, established in 1991. The primary objective of the nephrology program is to offer outstanding education and experience in an environment that encourages growth by preparing fellows for a career path in clinical and academic nephrology. The program provides nephrology fellows with broad clinical experiences and the resources to perform meaningful clinical research. The commitment of the faculty to teaching and research is considered to be a significant strength of the program.
The program attracts patients from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Ohio. A comprehensive curriculum has been developed to provide training in the following major areas: consultative nephrology, inpatient and outpatient dialysis and related renal replacement therapies including home hemodialysis, hypertension, and transplant nephrology. The program is closely integrated with the renal transplantation program and provides the fellows with a truly unique and valuable experience in transplantation medicine.
The fellows are provided with exciting research opportunities throughout their education. They are involved in all aspects of research, from initiation of protocol submissions to writing abstracts and posters for nephrology meetings and manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals.
