Pediatrics Nephrology and Hypertension Fellowship

The Mount Sinai Hospital's Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension Fellowship is designed to prepare trainees for a career as an academic pediatric nephrologist. Our three-year program dedicates one year to clinical training and two years to laboratory or clinical research.

As a fellow, you will take part in a robust set of training activities, including clinical rotations, patient care, and academic rotations that focus on your research or academic interests. Our weekly schedule has more information regarding outpatient clinical activities and conferences.

Our curriculum is designed to train fellows how to diagnose and manage kidney and urologic disorders; monitor fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base homeostasis; and maintain blood pressure in neonates, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Learn more our academic and clinical training

Fellows are given two years to work on developing their own research. We encourage our fellows to attend and present their work at regional and national scientific and clinical conferences hosted by organizations such as the American Society of Nephrology, Pediatric Academic Societies, and American Transplant Congress. Learn more about research opportunities available
