Fellowship candidates are selected from a pool of applicants who have successfully completed accredited US training programs in pediatrics and either pediatric nephrology, pediatric critical care medicine or pediatric cardiology. Candidates applying from outside Cincinnati Children’s must provide a letter of recommendation from their pediatric fellowship program director.
Each fellow is expected to undertake at least one clinical or translational research project in the area of acute renal disease. The Cincinnati Children’s Division of Nephrology and Hypertension has an active acute kidney injury research program, providing multiple opportunities for mentorship and guidance in the fellow’s area of interest.
Fellows are expected to present their findings to the Division of Nephrology twice during their fellowships.
Fellows are expected to attend all relevant educational conferences offered by the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension at Cincinnati Children’s: outpatient review, X-ray conference, core curriculum and nephrology rounds.
The division will also fund fellow attendance (including registration, travel and lodging) at the International Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Conference, held each spring in Coronado, CA.
