The UCSF Division of Pediatric Nephrology established its highly regarded fellowship in 1966, making it one of the oldest training programs of its type in the country. Since then, we have trained many academic leaders in the field. An NIH-sponsored training grant supports our program, which accepts one fellow per year.

We offer comprehensive clinical training in all aspects of pediatric nephrology: acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, electrolyte disorders, and kidney transplantation. The training program has an established track record of producing successful independent investigators in clinical research, translational research, and basic science.

The training program has three tracks: basic research scientist, clinical research scientist, and clinician educator.

Applications for the fellowship in pediatric nephrology may be made through the School of Medicine Department of Nephrology. The Division of Nephrology participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Please see How to Apply for more information.
