Nephrology Fellowship Program

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Stony Brook Medicine, Nephrology Fellowship Program. We provide a comprehensive post-graduate training program designed to produce outstanding clinical and academic nephrologists. The program offers an excellent balance of formal, informal, and independent education with ample exposure to all aspects of clinical nephrology including all modalities of dialysis, transplantation, hypertension, and ICU nephrology as well as clinical and basic science research. Fellowship highlights which enhance training include specialized ultrasound training, electives available in interventional nephrology, our comprehensive renal transplant program which offers exposure to all aspects of transplantation and two full-time nurse practitioners. 

The Fellowship

The Nephrology Fellowship Program at Stony Brook Medicine is a fully accredited program that was founded in 1980 and has trained over 100 fellows. The fellowship trains a total of 7 fellows and accepts 2-3 new fellows yearly. Individualized electives and tracts are available to meet the goals of each trainee and include:  

  • Clinical Nephrology: Two years which satisfies the ABIM requirements for certification.
