The goal of the Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is to provide a comprehensive clinical and research experience that prepares postdoctoral Fellows for careers as independent, academic pediatric nephrologists. In accordance with the requirements setup by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Subboard of Pediatric Nephrology, the duration of subspecialty training in the standard Fellowship pathway consists of a total of 1 year of clinical activities and 2 years of laboratory and/or clinical research. It is expected that successful completion of the training program will instill in Fellows a commitment to lifelong learning, and emphasize scholarship, self-instruction, development of critical analysis of clinical problems, and the ability to make appropriate decisions.
Trainees are generally: (a) board-eligible or certified pediatricians (DO, MD or MD /PhD) who have an interest in nephrology, and who (b) have completed 3 years of general pediatrics training in a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).
Our program welcomes applications from all eligible physicians. Such applications will be fairly reviewed without regard to race, color, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, age, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status, mental status or genetic predisposition. Fellows are selected on the basis of their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities, such as motivation and integrity.
