The Glomerular Diseases Fellowship is a one-year program at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, designed for physicians who are board-eligible in nephrology. The fellowship will provide extensive training in the complex world of glomerulonephritis treatment which is often challenging. Glomerulonephritis (GN) expertise now requires additional formal training to gain proficiency, especially with the ever-growing newer biologic treatments.

Program highlights:

  • Advanced training in diagnosis, evaluation, and management of a variety of different glomerulonephritis both common and rare
  • Training in evaluation and management of patients with monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance
  • Engagement in both clinical and translational research and exposure to clinical trials in glomerular diseases
  • Training in renal pathology and evaluation of glomerular diseases on kidney biopsy

There will also be a one-year track option for current Mayo Clinic nephrology fellows during their second year of fellowship.
