Major Goals of the Nephrology Fellowship Training Program

The Nephrology Fellowship Training Program at the Wake Forest School of Medicine is designed to prepare fellows for successful careers in either clinical practice or academic medicine. Fellows choose from three programs:

  • a two-year clinical training program
  • a three-year combined clinical nephrology/critical care training program
  • a three to four-year combined clinical/research fellowship

In the latter program, fellows will devote one year towards coursework in the Master's of Science in Clinical Epidemiology program, offered by the Department of Public Health Sciences. Specific goals of our training program are outlined as follows:

  1. Evaluation and management of clinical renal disorders in both the inpatient and outpatient settings
  2. Training in immunobiology and transplantation nephrology
  3. Maintaining the most current medical knowledge through participation in clinical conferences, journal clubs and research conferences
  4. Training in clinical research
