The Nephrology Fellowship Program at Lankenau Medical Center is a two-year, fully accredited course of study, following the completion of a three-year general internal medicine residency. Applicants should be board-certified or board-eligible in internal medicine. Board-eligible candidates will be expected to pass their internal medicine board exams before completing their fellowship.

The fellowship is heavily weighted toward "hands-on" clinical experience although clinical research is a critical part of the overall part of the program.

Mission statement

The mission of the Nephrology Fellowship Program at Lankenau Medical Center is to provide a high quality educational and research experience in the field of nephrology. The process shall involve regular teaching by the members of the division of nephrology and the program director. Clinical and/or bench research shall be performed by each nephrology fellow such that, at a minimum, an abstract worthy of presentation at a professional nephrology meeting shall be completed. Optimally, a manuscript and publication will also be completed.

The nephrology fellowship will help develop the fellow to be a competent, practicing, clinical nephrologist who will be prepared for and successfully take the nephrology sub-specialty board certification examination. Areas of core competence will include, but are not limited to, dialysis (hemo, CRRT and peritoneal), renal transplantation and consultation (ambulatory and inpatient), as well as appropriate renal-related procedures.
