The Nephrology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provides outstanding nephrology training in all aspects of clinical practice, research, and education. Opportunities in these three areas enable the curriculum to be individually designed to meet the specific goals of future investigative or clinical nephrologists.

Your training program can be customized to meet your individual career goals. The program offers flexibility for you within the clinical and research tracks. You will work closely with a highly experienced and knowledgeable clinical and research faculty. Advanced training tracks in critical care medicine, hypertension, and transplantation are available and, if offered, lead to certification.

Mayo Clinic's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population, and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic, and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. The "Mayo Clinic way" of graduate medical education ensures you will have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during a busy, hands-on fellowship.
