Nephrology is the branch of internal medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of kidney disease. The Division of Nephrology at the University of Washington is dedicated to providing excellent medical care for patients with hypertension, diabetic kidney disease, glomerulonephritis, acute and chronic renal failure, and for kidney transplantation through research and education. Our distinguished faculty are recognized leaders in the advancement of quality patient care as emerging science leads improvements in diagnostics and outcome of treatment. We have consistently been international leaders in cutting edge research, bringing innovations from the laboratory bench to the patient's bedside. We are committed to training young doctors, and offer fellowship training programs in general nephrology, transplant nephrology and dialysis. We currently hold a National Institutes of Health Training Grant (T32) to provide exceptional training for graduates interested in a research career. We value partnership and collaboration, working side-by-side with outstanding facilities such as the Kidney Research Institute, the Northwest Kidney Centers, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the Fred Hutchinson Research Center.
