Education

Welcome to the Nephrology Fellowship Training Program!

As Training Program Director I welcome you to explore this website and learn more about the exciting possibilities our program has to offer.

The philosophy of the Program is to develop a commitment and dedication to excellence in patient care, teaching, and research in an environment of professionalism. The goal of the Nephrology Training Program is to provide advanced education and training for fellows to develop and acquire expertise as consultants and subspecialists in Nephrology. We currently offer a two-year program ensuring training in all aspects of clinical nephrology. These include inpatient consultation, intensive care nephrology, transplantation, outpatient hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and outpatient consultation and follow-up. The clinical training is complemented by formal lectures and seminars with active participation of both trainees and all faculty members. We offer an optional third training year in transplantation, and research and critical care pathways are planned for the near future. Check out the division’s publications in PubMed.

On these pages you will find more information about our programs, have a look at the actual service schedules, conference calendar, a list of our teaching faculty, and our fellow selection policy. Our offices are located in the Clinical Research Building, 1120 NW 14th Street, 8th floor, room 809A.

Beyond this website, you may also want to explore the website of the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, the GME page of our sponsoring institution, Jackson Memorial Hospital/Public Health Trust, browse information about Miami and the Beaches, and have a look at our Yearbook to see current and former fellows. The American Society of Nephrology has compiled information about different career paths in nephrology that may be of interest.

The Nephrology Training Program utilizes ERAS (1481121151) for all applications and participates in the NRMP (1104148F0). Applications from women and minorities are encouraged.

Please feel free to contact the Training Program Coordinator, Ms Camile DiCanio, should you have additonal questions. She is also handling requests for observerships.

For those interested in our transplant fellowship, please contact Dr. Mariella Ortigosa-Goggins who directs the program.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Miami.
