Clinical Training

We welcome applications from well-trained and committed pediatricians who are board-eligible and graduates of accredited pediatric residency programs. Fellows acquire the clinical skills needed to independently practice pediatric nephrology at the end of the training program through a wide range of clinical experiences. The goal of the clinical portion of the fellowship program is for fellows to gain exposure to and develop expertise in the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of diseases cared for by pediatric nephrologists.

Clinical training experiences include:

  • Pediatric nephrology inpatient and consultative service
  • Outpatient general nephrology clinics
  • Outpatient transplant clinics
  • Outpatient peritoneal dialysis clinics
  • Ongoing care of in-center hemodialysis patients
  • Pediatric Urology, Radiology, Renal Pathology rotations
  • Training in percutaneous kidney biopsy technique
  • Training in renal replacement therapy in the ICU setting (CRRT, PD, HD)

Our physicians and staff care for 40 transplant patients in the University Hospitals Transplant Institute, 10 to 15 patients with end-stage kidney disease in the Dialysis Center, and hundreds of patients with other kidney diseases, including acute and chronic glomerulonephritis, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, nephrotic syndrome, congenital urinary tract anomalies, inherited kidney disorders, and fluid and electrolyte abnormalities. The division averages over 300 inpatient consultations/admissions per year, 1,600 inpatient follow-up visits, 400 outpatient consultations and 1700 follow-up outpatient visits per year.
