Clinical Training

Fellowship training in clinical nephrology includes:

  • Management of acute and chronic inpatient renal diseases
  • Renal diagnostic services including renal biopsy and pathology
  • Renal transplantation
  • Outpatient management of patients with renal diseases

At Mount Sinai, an active dialysis service provides training in the management of:

  • Inpatient and outpatient hemodialysis
  • Continuous veno-venous hemofiltration, 
  • Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
  • Continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis
  • Acute peritoneal dialysis

State-of-the-art hemodialysis facilities include the 24-station outpatient Mount Sinai Dialysis Center and the 12-station inpatient Mount Sinai Renal Treatment Center. Our peritoneal dialysis program is the largest in New York City. The renal consultation service provides extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of acute renal diseases, fluid and electrolyte disorders, acid-base disorders, and glomerular diseases.

Additionally, the Mount Sinai Kidney/Pancreas Transplantation Program of the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute is one of the most active in the Northeast, with approximately 150 renal transplants performed per year. The transplant rotation involves multidisciplinary management of kidney and pancreas transplant recipients as well as acute consultation on recipients of other solid organ and bone marrow transplants with renal abnormalities. 

Clinical training is further enhanced by our close affiliation with the James J. Peters VA Medical Center, one of the outstanding VA medical centers in the country. All fellows and faculty participate actively in clinical, pathology, and research conferences in addition to the many interdisciplinary conferences offered at The Mount Sinai Health System.
