Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Division of Pediatric Nephrology at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC offers a three-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program. As one of the country’s premier centers for NIH-funded kidney research, we can provide fellows with a unique opportunity for both outstanding clinical training and world-class research.
As a fellow in our nephrology program, you will receive clinical training that includes a broad spectrum of patients with kidney disorders, both on inpatient and outpatient rotations. Ours is one of the largest programs in the country, with eight attending physicians who offer a wealth of diverse experience and training from programs at the nation’s top major medical centers. The program offers unparalleled exposure to acute dialytic therapies in a wide variety of patient conditions. The Pediatric Renal Transplant service is also one of the largest in the country, providing innovative, state-of-the-art care.
We emphasize renal physiology as a key to better diagnosis and treatment.
Supplementing learning from direct patient contact, you will participate in didactic lectures, conferences and journal clubs, and will develop a Quality Improvement project. Our emphasis on renal physiology, in lecture content as well as informal conferences, will help you gain a more thorough understanding of kidney function and pathology that will aid in diagnosis and treatment.
A balance of work, life and learning
One of the unique aspects of our program is that its size will provide you with an optimum volume and variety of patients and cases. At the same time, this is a professional culture that respects work/life balance. Faculty is committed to sharing the patient work load and maintaining a focus on providing you with optimum exposure to situations that emphasize learning
