We are proud to announce that the ACGME- accredited Nephrology fellowship is one of the newest subspecialty programs to join the outstanding family of graduate medical education programs 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

The EVMS Nephrology Fellowship Program provides teaching that is structured to meet the goals of each individual trainee, offering 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 of the three locations. The training offers extensive experiences in consultative nephrology, acute and chronic hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, renal transplantation, management of hypertension and evaluation and treatment of nephrolithiasis. In addition, the fellows have the unique opportunity to participate and be exposed to the treatment of lysosomal storage disease, a polycystic disease clinic, and a specialized hypertension clinic.

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