Our mission is to develop academic pediatric nephrologists that embody excellence in care, discovery and leadership through robust clinical training and broad research opportunities in pediatric nephrology.
The Division of Pediatric Nephrology at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh offers a three-year ACGME-accredited Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship program that provides outstanding clinical training and world-class research opportunities. The pediatric renal transplant service is one of the largest in the country, providing innovative, state-of-the-art care. Fellows are trained in all modalities of renal replacement therapies across the lifespan of pediatrics. The robust inpatient, consult and outpatient service will allow the fellow to care for a broad spectrum of patients with kidney disorders.
The fellowship program offers superb and diverse training in clinical, translational and basic research across the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Campus. The Division has five research-based MDs and two PhDs, the majority of whom are engaged in NIH R01 funded research. Prior fellows’ research projects have included: vesicoureteral reflux, transplant immunology, nephrotoxins and acute kidney injury, infections and acute kidney injury, urinary microbiome, monogenic causes of hypertension and health disparities in renal transplantation. Fellows will access to the wide array of resources at the Pitt School of Medicine, including a prestigious O’Brien Center award.
