Our three-year fellowship program at Oishei Children’ Hospital is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education.
Our comprehensive program is aimed at creating excellent nephrologists and leaders in the pediatric nephrology field. We have had a fellowship track since 1990 and have produced outstanding pediatric nephrologists who are currently practicing in various programs and hospitals throughout the U.S.
We understand that you may be having difficulties in obtaining letters of recommendation, access to rotations to prepare for fellowship training, and ability to complete research projects. We will review all applicants in their entirety and take the various difficulties that the candidates face into consideration. We affirm our commitment to virtual interviews this season to all our applicants. This aligns with the consensus statement by the various Training Programs Committees.
The goal of our program is to educate fellows and provide them with skills and expertise to excel in pediatric nephrology. At the completion of this training program, fellows will have the required abilities to thrive in an academic and/or private pediatric nephrology practice. We offer one position per year.
