The nephrology fellowship program at the University of Kentucky is a dynamic training program suited to train the individualized needs of an aspiring nephrologist.  The first year provides a solid foundation for clinical nephrology with the care of high acuity patients and diverse pathology.  The second year provides a focus for the individual trainee to explore an area of interest which may include outpatient dialysis, interventional nephrology, glomerulonephritis, point of care ultrasound, transplant, or medical education.  We are fortunate to have a number of advanced practice providers that help us minimize call and weekend work; our fellows consistently work less than 10 weekends per year.  My intention as a program director is to focus on education over workload while providing ample experiences to prepare you for ABIM board certification and help start your nephrology career. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing more about our nephrology family!

Welcome to the University of Kentucky Nephrology Fellowship webpage! We are proud of this program and all its graduates over the years. What makes this fellowship rather unique are multiple factors: an unparalleled patient mix with a variety of diagnoses from across Central and Southeastern Kentucky; a breadth of faculty with diverse interests and friendly relationship with trainees that is based on mutual respect; a concrete balance between service and education founded with deliberate design and overall structure and a curriculum that is tailored to individual trainee's career path. I hope you find enough details in the following pages, but I highly recommend to you to come and visit us for a firsthand look should you be interested in joining this training program.
