I would like to warmly welcome and thank you for showing an interest in our interventional nephrology fellowship program. We are one of the few academic programs in the country to provide a comprehensive 360-degree dialysis vascular access care training.
Fellows will gain one year of interventional experience and train at the dedicated interventional nephrology unit at University of Michigan which will prepare you for a career as an interventional nephrologist in both the academic and private practice settings and which will meet the requirements for American Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology (ASDIN) certification.
As a fellow you would be exposed to a diverse population of patients, develop a basic knowledge of the anatomy and pathogenesis of vascular access dysfunction, and an understanding of the clinical skills to recognize and manage dialysis access issues and competently perform appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic interventional procedures. In addition, you will be exposed to the latest cutting-edge technologies like endovascular arteriovenous fistula creation and fellows will do research with interventional nephrology faculty in dialysis access care and are expected to present abstracts at national meetings and to publish manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals.
Fellows will be mentored by nationally recognized ASDIN certified interventional nephrologists who are dedicated to developing new techniques that will improve patients’ lives by facilitating vascular access for hemodialysis patients with novel methods of treatment and prevention.
Please feel free to browse the website, familiarize yourself with the highlights and objectives of the program, reflections from current and past fellows and lastly how to apply. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
