Welcome to the Nephrology Fellowship Program at Cooper!

Cooper’s mission is: “To serve. To heal. To educate.” The Nephrology Fellowship Division is happy to play an integral part in this mission. Cooper is a large tertiary care hospital serving its immediate Camden community as well as its referral base throughout all of southern New Jersey.

Cooper is absolutely committed to medical education at both the undergraduate and graduate medical education level. After many decades of hosting 3rd and 4th year students from Robert Wood Johnson University in New Brunswick, a new medical school opened at Cooper in 2012. This school, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, graduated its first class in 2016. The institutional commitment to growth and academic pursuits is exemplified by this new academic presence as well as the ongoing complement of residency and fellowship programs. The Nephrology Fellowship Program has a strong history of producing clinician educators with exposure to all varieties of kidney disease. In fact, two of Cooper’s current nephrology faculty trained at Cooper either for residency or fellowship, or both.

The Nephrology Fellowship Program offers a great diversity of experiences from critically ill patients at Cooper to transplant patients to all forms of dialysis in the outpatient setting. Please see the Fellowship Education section for more details and future goals of the program.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you as you consider your site for nephrology training.

Sincerely,

Christopher B. McFadden, MD
Fellowship Program Director
