About the Program

The Pediatric Nephrology fellowship at The University of Iowa is a three-year program that provides training in all aspects of clinical pediatric nephrology and gives fellows tailored opportunities for participation in clinical, translational, or basic science research. Our fellowship program is integrated into the global fellowship training program in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics and offers broad educational opportunities across the campus. In addition, we have a pediatric nephrology fellows lecture series which covers all the pediatric nephrology content specifications of the ABP to prepare our fellows for success in both the pediatric nephrology board exam and in clinical practice.

We offer unique opportunities in rare renal disease education with a dedicated clinical program with an international referral base. This is supported by the University of Iowa Institute for Human Genetics and is a cross disciplinary program. Our faculty have varied clinical and research interests from basic science to clinical quality improvement, to neurocognitive outcomes in CKD, and more.
