Nephrology Fellowship

About the Program

We are committed to offering our fellows a comprehensive clinical nephrology training program and have a staff dedicated to ensuring the experience will be hands-on, vibrant, interactive, and incorporate ample opportunities for clinical experience in general nephrology, interventions associated with the practice of nephrology, and support for clinical research.

Our fellows will be under the supervision and training of our staff of highly credentialed and extremely experienced nephrologists.


Director's letter:

Allow me to welcome you to the Nephrology Fellowship Program at Rochester Regional Health which will ensure the future care of patients with kidney disease by offering fellows a state-of-the-art, comprehensive clinical nephrology education.

Our ever growing and dynamic health care system consists of five hospitals covering a 14-county area in Western New York State. Your primary education will be centered within Rochester General Hospital, the flagship hospital of the system. There you have the opportunity to care for patients with a wide range of needs, under the guidance of a group of nephrologists I have worked with since 2004. The nephrologists here have trained at top nephrology programs and are expert clinicians. Medical education and training runs through our blood here; the very successful Rochester General Hospital internal medicine residency program was developed by a nephrologist and has been under the directorship of nephrologists since inception. Our group creates and runs a weekly clinical conference and twice yearly we present formal medical grand rounds.  We are actively engaged with residents in clinical research projects.  We will create a superb environment for our nephrology fellows.

We look forward to meeting you and telling you more about what we have to offer.
