Overview

The Emory University School of Medicine Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship Program capitalizes on the outstanding clinical and academic facilities of Emory University, Children's Physician Group, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to prepare trainees for specialization in Pediatric Nephrology. We offer a 3 year curriculum that combines dynamic clinical service, structured didactics, and mentored clinical or basic research. Serving over 9 million population, many of our clinical services are amongst the largest in the country inclusive of a large and dynamic renal transplant program. Our Divisional faculty of 6 pediatric nephrologists spans a broad spectrum of career experience including junior, mid-career, and senior physicians comprising a wealth of experience and a lifelong dedication to teaching. Our goal is to train academically oriented pediatric nephrologists who will be involved in a lifetime of excellence in patient care, teaching, and translational research. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

The Division provides clinical services at the Emory Children's Center and at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, a 255 bed children’s hospital on the campus of Emory University. Children’s is ranked as one of the top children’s hospitals nationwide. The pediatric ESRD program at Children's at Egleston serves some 20-40 dialysis patients at a time and performs over 20 transplants per year. In fact, our transplant service performed more transplants then any other pediatric programs in the country over the 5 years from 2007 through 2011. Outstanding collaborative research opportunities are available within the University in transplant immunology and in various areas of nephrology and physiology. Children's Healthcare of Atlanta offers outstanding pediatric facilities and support, including a modern pediatric-specific dialysis unit, while Emory University provides beautiful campus surroundings and one of the nation's fastest research growth trajectories.
