Nephrology Fellowship Program

The Johns Hopkins Nephrology Fellowship Program is one the nation’s premier nephrology training programs.  The goal of the program is to educate physicians to be clinically outstanding nephrologists, skilled in investigative methods and teaching, and capable of life-long learning. This goal is accomplished through rigorous clinical training in nephrology and through abundant opportunities for professional development through programs geared towards individual interests in clinical excellence, educational scholarship, and scientific investigation.

Program Overview

The Johns Hopkins Nephrology Fellowship Program is overseen by the Office of Graduate Medical Education at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  Rotations occur predominantly at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. 

The program is 2 years in length and consists of three tracks: basic science research, clinical/epidemiological research, and clinical education.  The first year is dedicated to clinical training through various inpatient consultation services, inpatient renal transplantation service, weekly outpatient continuity clinic, direct experience in the various modalities of renal replacement therapy and renal procedures, and electives through other subspecialties important in clinical nephrology practice.  The second year and optional third year are designed to further develop and hone clinical, educational, and research skills with the emphasis depending upon the fellow’s career goals.
