Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine, Nephrology Fellowship Program Director

Welcome to the Nephrology Training Program at the University of Pennsylvania.  The University of Pennsylvania Nephrology Fellowship Program has been training highly qualified and successful nephrologists since 1948, preparing trainees to excel in clinical practice, research endeavors, and public policy.  Our fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive clinical exposure and opportunities to pursue interests in medical education, subspecialty training, and research.  Our goal is to provide exceptional clinical training in a supportive and academically stimulating environment.

All of our fellows complete clinical training within three hospital settings, located within walking distance from the main teaching hospital, The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.  Our division faculty at each hospital are dedicated to ensuring exposure across the full spectrum of nephrology practice, including critical care nephrology, all modalities of dialysis, glomerular disease, transplant, and acute and chronic kidney disease management.  Fellows also have the opportunity to be involved in sub-specialty outpatient clinics, including transplant, nephrolithiasis, onconephrology, glomerular diseases, complex hypertension, polycystic kidney disease, and palliative nephrology.  Penn has the largest kidney transplant center and home dialysis program in the Philadelphia area, and our fellows are integrated into these programs to maximize their educational experience.

In addition to our two-year clinical nephrology program, Penn offers a three-year research fellowship, with the goal to educate researcher scholars in either basic science research, translational research, clinical research, or health policy research through the University of Pennsylvania. 

Our faculty is committed to providing fellows with the very best education possible. Following graduation, our fellows excel at whatever career pathway they may choose, be it private practice, academic practice, basic or clinical research, or public policy.

We invite you to explore our program further.  Please feel free to contact us for additional information.
