Pediatric Nephrology Fellowships

The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Nephrology fellowship is a three-year program designed to provide outstanding clinical education and rigorous training in clinical research to provide the foundations for successful careers in academic medicine. In keeping with the mission and vision of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the program emphasizes development of excellence in clinical skills in a diverse environment in addition to fostering skills as researchers, educators and leaders in pediatric nephrology. The clinical experience is divided throughout the three years of training, allowing for ongoing exposure to acute conditions encountered in pediatric nephrology, as well as the continuity required to master the care of complex chronic conditions. Clinical experience consists of inpatient nephrology service, longitudinal outpatient clinic, outpatient hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis and management of kidney transplant recipients. A unique aspect to our program is that trainees complete a Masters in Health Science in Clinical Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and receive mentorship by experts in clinical research from within the division of pediatric nephrology and colleagues in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health. The degree program provides trainees with the tools to become independent investigators at the completion of their training.
