Renal Pediatrics

This rotation, typically one month in the first year, is designed to give the fellow exposure to certain aspects of nephrology not typically encountered during the year.

During this rotation, the fellow will participate in inpatient rounds with a pediatric nephrologist three times per week. The fellow will also attend two pediatric clinics, one involved in the outpatient care of the general pediatric nephrology patient and the other dealing with chronic renal failure in the pediatric population. The fellow is expected to take an active role in the evaluation and acute management of pediatric renal consults and may participate in renal biopsies and access procedures for dialysis.
