Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Nephrology Fellowship Training Program at the University of Washington. Our fellowship program offers multiple training tracks with the goal of producing the future leaders in academic and clinical nephrology. Rigorous and well-designed training pathways are offered for fellows interested in academic careers as clinician educators or basic, clinical, or translational science investigators. For those planning to enter clinical practice, a well-balanced and comprehensive clinical training is offered at superb clinical training sites. This includes the transplant and consult services at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC); the consult services at the main safety net hospital for the region, Harborview Medical Center (HMC); longitudinal dialysis experience at the historic Northwest Kidney Centers; and the consult and dialysis rotations at the Puget Sound Veterans Affairs Medical Center. UWMC and HMC rank as the #1 and #2 hospitals respectively in the State of Washington.
The research training pathways utilize the extensive resources in the Division of Nephrology and the Kidney Research Institute along with the University of Washington School of Public Health and other collaborators. The clinician educator pathway capitalizes on the array of respected and award winning clinical teaching faculty along with a formal training program. We are also proud to offer an additional year of training in a Nephrology Transplant Fellowship Program and an Advanced Nephrology Dialysis Fellowship Program.
Our website offers detailed information about our training program, but please feel free to contact us with any questions.
