Welcome

 

 Message from Program Director:

 

We are proud to announce that EVMS has inaugurated the ACGME- accredited Nephrology fellowship. This fellowship builds on the success of the other 5 Internal Medicine fellowships offered at EVMS.

 

Our comprehensive and well-balanced training occurs at three premier Hampton Roads sites:

 

  1. Eastern Virginia Medical School
  2. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital
  3. Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Hampton
  4. Offices of Nephrology Associates of Tidewater, Ltd.

 

The EVMS Nephrology Fellowship Program is focused on teaching clinical excellence. The teaching staff focuses exclusively on clinical care through daily rounds, clinics, and clinical research. The fellowship is taught at the nationally recognized Sentara Norfolk General that is a Level 1 Trauma Center; cardiac surgery referral center; and supports kidney, heart and pancreas transplant programs. The VA Medical Center offers a large population of patients on peritoneal and hemodialysis.  Nephrology Associates of Tidewater is the premier private practice in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. Most of the partners of Nephrology Associates have advanced training in Nephrology and hold academic appointments with EVMS.

 

Teaching is structured to meet the ACGME training requirements and will meet the individual needs of each trainee.  This program offers a broad range of experiences necessary for a successful career as clinical practitioner and/or academician. Rotations are designed to capitalize on the state-of-the-art facilities and resources at each location. The training offers extensive experiences in consultative nephrology; onco-nephrology; cardio-renal syndrome; acute and chronic hemodialysis; peritoneal dialysis; renal transplantation; management of hypertension; and evaluation and treatment of nephrolithiasis, electrolyte disorders, and polycystic disease.

 

Daily teaching rounds with division faculty, in conjunction with a variety of educational conferences, provide a rich and rewarding learning environment. The diverse research projects of the EVMS faculty provide the opportunity for renal fellows to pursue research goals in quality research facilities with experienced mentors.
