Selection Policy Process & Interview Day
Selection Criteria for Interviewing Applicants
The nephrology faculty, in a joint meeting, reviews applicants who meet the criteria. Based on the quality of the application and academic credentials, the applicant is subsequently invited for an interview.
On the interview day, applicants receive an information packet and interview with members of the Division of Nephrology and the nephrology fellows. At the conclusion of the interview, the interviewers complete a standard evaluation form for each applicant they interviewed. The results are tallied and form the basis of the preliminary rank order.
The University of Utah Nephrology program participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP, aka “the Match”) for all entering fellows.
The Guide to the Nephrology Fellowship Program is given to applicants on interview day and includes:
- Examples of the fellow rotation schedule, the monthly call schedule, and the monthly conference
- Program curriculum, including goals, objectives, and evaluation procedures
- Work hours and supervision policy
- Vacation/absence policy
- Stipend information
- Insurance coverage information
- Benefits summary
- University policies pertinent to fellows with regard to sexual harassment
The University of Utah Graduate Medical Education Committee requires that fellows have a Utah Medical License and ACLS certification. Fellows who are not currently certified in ACLS must become so within six months of commencing their training.
