Nephrology Fellowship

Mission Statement

To train and produce physician-scientists in basic science and clinical research, to become leaders in the field of academic and clinical pediatric nephrology.

Program Overview

Established in 1989, the Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship program benefits from a strong multidisciplinary clinical program that partners a wealth of expertise from specialized nurses (dialysis, transplant and clinic), nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians and physicians. As the only free standing children's hospital within a five-state region, we provide care to children from a geographically diverse area, , providing a breadth of exposure to clinical nephrology.

With support from an NIH training grant since 1991, our fellowship program is dedicated to training academic pediatric nephrologists who are committed to careers with significant teaching and research activities. Each trainee works with the faculty to design an individualized research program in one of the following areas: basic science, clinical research or translational investigation. Several members of the division hold extramural grants to perform basic or clinical research studies and have considerable experience as research supervisors, but fellows may also select primary research mentors outside the division. As a robust teaching and research institution, the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM) is home to the Kidney Research Institute (KRI), What else???
