Gain leadership experience as you teach trainees. Establish your position as a nephrology specialist as you take a more independent role in patient management.

Our teaching rotation will prepare you to assume the role of an attending nephrologist by serving as a teaching attending on consultation service.

During this rotation, we’ll expect you to undertake an increased level of responsibility for making patient care decisions in consultative nephrology.

Although you’ll confer with our faculty on a daily basis, we’ll ask you to engage in a more active and self-reliant role as you oversee patients and engage in facets of care including:

  • obtaining a clinical history
  • performing a relevant review of systems
  • assessing the functional status of patients with symptoms of renal conditions
  • handling administrative matters

Demonstrate Your Experience and Training

Our teaching rotation facilitates your transition from a trainee to a practitioner in clinical nephrology. 

You’ll be responsible for supporting on-site faculty, and you’ll sharpen your teaching skills when you supervise first-year renal fellows, residents and students on their renal elective.
