Fellowship in Nephrology at North Shore University Hospital & Long Island Jewish Medical Center (NS/LIJ)
The principal goal of the Nephrology fellowship program is to prepare fellows for careers in clinical practice as well as academic medicine. It is designed to have fellows achieve a high level of competence across all six core competencies and provide fellows with:
- A strong clinical foundation that will allow them to practice independently and provide high-quality care to patients while continuing to pursue self-directed learning
- The skills to be able to teach their peers, fellows, residents and students in the venues that they will work
- A background in research that will allow those who wish to pursue this pathway the opportunity for a productive investigative career in either clinical or laboratory research.
The program is designed to prepare fellows for careers as practicing nephrologists as well as for careers in academic medicine.
