Division of Nephrology-Hypertension

Fellowship Program

Welcome! The University of California, San Diego Nephrology fellowship is designed to prepare young physicians for a career in academic or clinical nephrology. The program is accredited through ACGME and provides training in all aspects of nephrology. The fellowship program consists of one year of training in clinical nephrology and two years of research. Applications for fellowship are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), and selection of fellows will be conducted by a match through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). For more information about applying for fellowship please follow the "Application for Fellowship" link on this page.

The clinical year offers wide exposure to all aspects of nephrology in several different sites. Exceptional faculty and a broad patient population are hallmarks of the clinical training. Fellows spend time at the University Medical Center in Hillcrest, the San Diego Veteran’s Administration Medical Center in La Jolla and at the Balboa Navy Medical Center in Balboa Park. For more information about the clinical training please follow the "Clinical Experience" link on this page.

The research years offer the fellows protected time to conceive, pursue, present, and publish original investigations in nephrology. Our division has active research interests that span the bench to the bedside. During the research years fellows work closely with the PI of their choosing and clinical duties are kept at a minimum, thereby allowing the fellows an opportunity to excel in the academic aspect of nephrology. For more information about the research training please follow the "Research Experience" link on this page.
