The University of Utah Nephrology Fellowship Program is dedicated to providing the highest quality clinical and research training in the subspecialty of Nephrology. It is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
There are two programs:
- The two-year clinical program is based at the University of Utah Hospital and the George E. Wahlen Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Upon completion, fellows are board eligible in nephrology. This program provides primarily clinical training; however, in addition to excellent clinical training, the University of Utah Nephrology Clinical Fellowship Program is designed to provide experience in clinical research. Fellows are placed into on-going faculty clinical research projects and given an opportunity to develop related research interests of their own.
- The three-year research program involves one year of clinical training and two years of basic or clinical research. The clinical year may be done at the beginning or the end of the fellowship and is structured identical to the clinical experience of a year in the two year clinical fellowship. The two years of research are spent under the direction of a faculty member within the Division of Nephrology.
