Nephrology & Hypertension Education
Our educational curriculum and clinical training are comprehensive and complemented by an intense conference schedule. Each week, renal trainees attend a minimum of 5 educational conferences: Renal Pathology Conference; Grand Rounds; Journal Club; Chief of Service Rounds; and Consultation Rounds. In addition, seminars are offered on topics such as hemodialysis, hypertension and renal physiology. The renal attending physicians and fellows gain valuable teaching experience through actively contributing to the training of medical students, Internal Medicine residents and the surgery residents (on the transplant rotation). Rotations in our division include Acute Dialysis, Outpatient Maintenance, Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, Renal Medicine/Hypertension, Research and Transplantation. Longitudinal Clinics include Outpatient Continuity Clinic, Hypertension Clinic and Outpatient Transplant Clinic.
Our distinguished faculty members are highly sought-after for their participation and leadership in national and international meetings. Often, our faculty members serve as program faculty for the post-graduate courses organized by national societies such as the American Society of Nephrology and the American Transplantation Society.
