Nephrology is the specialty branch of internal medicine concerned with kidney function and diseases. A nephrologist is a licensed medical physician trained in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disorders, such as electrolyte imbalances, hypertension, kidney stones and renal failure. A nephrologist is often referred to as a “kidney doctor.”

To become a nephrologist in the U.S. requires many years of schooling and clinical training. After medical school, a nephrologist must complete at least three years of residency in general internal medicine, followed by two or more years of specialized training in nephrology.
