Renal Diseases and Hypertension Education

 

IM_Renal_EducationThe primary goal of the Nephrology Fellowship Program at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth is to develop trainees into superb accomplished sub-specialists in nephrology. The fellowship program is either a two (clinical track) or three (academic track) year program with four to five positions per year. The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and meets the requirements for certification in Nephrology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Trainees acquire the knowledge and procedural skills necessary to deliver superb care to patients with a wide array of kidney disorders and hypertension. They also receive training in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical or basic research from a group of prominent renal investigators.

We accept applications for fellowship positions through Electronic Residency Application Service only.
