Nephrology Transplant Fellowship Program

JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL NEPHROLOGY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Nephrology Fellowship Program is one of the nation's premier renal 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 individuals interested in clinical practice, education, and investigation at the Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Program Overview

The Program is 2 – 4 years in length depending on the trainee’s interest and consists of three fellowship 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 renal practice.  The second year and optional third/ fourth years are designed to further develop and hone clinical, educational, and research skills with the emphasis depending upon the fellow’s career goals.

The program attracts a diverse group of applicants.  Our fellows come from training programs across the United States and have a wide array of clinical and research interests, including clinical epidemiological research, translational research, medical education, and program building.

CURRICULUM

Our mission is to education physicians who are clinically outstanding in the field of nephrology in a variety of settings and who possess habits of life-long learning to augment their skills and professionalism.
