CURRICULUM AND TRAINING

The Renal-Electrolyte Division offers our clinical trainees a broad-based didactic curriculum. All clinical trainees meet with the faculty for a series of lectures and discussions to provide an introduction to important areas of nephrology, and highlight areas pertinent to certification examination requirements. Throughout the year the Division hosts a regular series of clinical and research conferences; including Renal Grand Rounds, Biopsy Conference, Journal Club, Research Seminar Series, and a Clinical Lecture Series. Fellows present at Renal Grand Rounds and Journal Club, and participate in the teaching of University of Pittsburgh medical students. Weekly Research Seminar is designed to allow research trainees to present progress reports of ongoing work, and hear about current research from our faculty. In addition, weekly research conferences are held by the Departments of Cell Biology and Physiology, Pharmacology, Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry, Pathology and Biological Sciences.
