Program Highlights

Three fellowship slots are offered each year. Our two-year program prides itself on its work-life balance, as well as state-of-the-art teaching space and dialysis facility. While fellows enjoy a 1-in-6 weekend call, they are offered a rich experience in all spheres of clinical nephrology: ambulatory and inpatient consultation, all types of home and in-center dialysis, transplantation, critical care nephrology, renal imaging and biopsy. Meeting regularly with a dedicated nephropathologist, fellows develop a strong foundation in interpreting renal histopathology. Fellows also gain exposure to pediatric nephrology. They receive exceptional training in quality improvement techniques and have ample opportunity for clinical research in the fields of chronic kidney disease, dialysis and transplantation. In all of these activities, fellows are paired with experienced academic nephrologists. Faculty enthusiastically embrace their roles as mentors; many have been recipients of teaching awards from fellows, students, residents, and colleagues. Our diverse faculty hail from all corners of the world. Many faculty members received residency and fellowship training at UMass.
