Annual Annette Fitz Memorial Fellowship Lecture

This lecture is given in memory of the many contributions of Dr. Annette Fitz to our Nephrology Division and Department of Medicine for over 30 years until her untimely death in 1995. Dr. Fitz was a consummate educator and clinician and her life was dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and the desire to share that knowledge with her students at all levels of training.

In celebration of Dr. Fitz’s dedication to education, we annually challenge our renal fellows to identify a topic in Nephrology and a speaker whom they feel would most contribute to their own education and pursuit of knowledge.
