Fellowship Program

Program Overview

The University of South Florida's Nephrology and Hypertension Fellowship Program is an ACGME accredited, two-year program. Our Program 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 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.

USF’s clinic’s favorable faculty ratio, large patient population and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated education experience. Our program ensures you will have the finest teaching and broadest patient care experience possible during a busy, hands-on fellowship.
