The Nephrology Division has an active educational program with a large number of regular conferences including: Journal Club, pathology, clinical, research, sign out and nephrology grand rounds.
We regularly receive over 250 fellowship applications each year to fill our three open fellowship positions (total of six renal fellows). We have the privilege of selecting from the very best and brightest residents, including a number from our own Internal Medicine Housestaff program, to fill our fellowship roster. The Nephrology fellowship, under the direction of Rebeca D. Monk, M.D., is designed to immerse the fellow in a broad array of renal consultative problems, dialysis and transplantation over two years. By the end of the fellowship, trainees will have developed the clinical and academic tools to handle any aspect of clinical Nephrology practice. They will acquire skills in teaching and communicating this knowledge to other practitioners, students, and patients. Our goal is to not only provide a thorough grounding in renal knowledge, but also to instill in our fellows the humanitarian and professional skills we feel are essential in caring for this complex group of patients. Much of Nephrology practice is accomplished as part of a team that includes other Nephrologists, nurses, technicians, surgeons, secretaries, and most importantly, the patients themselves. In close contact with all of these professionals and (many!) patients over two years, fellows grow into knowledgeable, inquisitive, communicative, and caring attending physicians. This is accomplished by participating in inpatient and outpatient rotations, didactic seminars, conferences, and one-on-one interactions with the Nephrology faculty, residents, and support staff.
