The Nephrology Fellowship is a two-year program. Fellows rotate through the inpatient service, outpatient dialysis clinic, and renal transplantation service. The fellow gains expertise in acute and maintenance dialysis modalities (including continuous dialysis) and maintenance dialysis modalities (PD and hemodialysis), renal biopsy, immediate and long-term management of renal transplant patients, and access placement for peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis.
The second year is devoted to consolidation of clinical skills and research. In each year, the fellow maintains an outpatient office practice. Candidates must be board-eligible/certified in internal medicine.
The fellowship program is designed to prepare individuals for a successful career in the field of Nephrology. Particular strengths of the program include the depth and breadth of patient exposure at Cooper, the transplant experience at the University of Pennsylvania, and the emphasis on outpatient nephrology.
