WashU Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Position Open

WashU Transplant Nephrology Team

Washington University School of Medicine Division of Nephrology has an AST-accredited transplant nephrology fellowship for those who wish to specialize in transplant nephrology.

This fellowship will train and prepare our fellows to become outstanding and qualified transplant nephrologists and/or medical directors of kidney and pancreas transplant programs.  The fellowship position is available for the 2023-2024 academic year.

The one-year nephrology fellowship provides a broad experience in all clinical aspects of kidney and pancreas transplantation. The clinical experience will be a combination of inpatient and outpatient direct patient care, didactic sessions, and training with pathology, surgery and tissue typing specialists.

During this year, a minimum of six months will be spent on the inpatient service where the fellow will be involved in the care of renal and kidney-pancreas transplant patients, other solid organ transplant recipients, pre- and post-transplantation kidney transplant management, and trained to perform transplant kidney biopsies.  The transplant nephrology fellow will attend our outpatient clinic and be actively involved in assessing potential recipients and donors.

The fellow will have the opportunity to attend and participate in clinical and research conferences in nephrology and transplantation, including a specific transplant core curriculum.  The transplant team has an active research program, and the candidate will have the opportunity to participate in research during the fellowship.

The Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital kidney transplant program is one of the largest, oldest, and most successful in the United States with more than 5000 kidney transplants since 1965.  For 28 years, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine have ranked in the prestigious Honor Roll among the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News and World Report.

We will accept applications from holders of a J1 or H1 visa.  

The successful completion of at least two years of an ACGME-approved general nephrology fellowship training program, or completion of equivalent nephrology training outside the US, is required.
