First and second year nephrology fellows will be introduced to research design, statistics, interpretation of research studies, and critical review of the literature to acquire skills for lifelong learning.  They will also acquire the skills and knowledge to conduct ethical clinical research.  Fellows are expected to design, implement and complete their research project during the fellowship.  Furthermore, it is expected that each fellow will have an abstract of his/her work published and perhaps presented at one of the annual national nephrology meetings.
