Advanced Pediatric Training with Renowned Experts
The Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship is led by Program Director Andrew Schwaderer, MD, Associate Program Director Myda Khalid, MD, and Fellowship Coordinator Jessica Darling.
The Pediatric Nephrology fellowship develops academic pediatric nephrologists with well-defined areas of academic/research/clinical interests by the time of graduation. During the clinical year, fellows learn how to prescribe all forms of acute renal replacement therapy, including CVVH, Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis. They also become proficient at managing chronic outpatient hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
Fellows must submit one first-authored manuscript during the fellowship as required by the American Board of Pediatrics. In addition fellows broaden other scholarship skills that include (but are not limited to) participating and presenting at national conferences, grant writing and contributing to multicenter studies. An assigned research mentor guides each fellow through these process.
