Program Description

This two-year nephrology and hypertension fellowship program is a collaboration between Botsford Hospital, St. John's Macomb Hospital and Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM). The fellow learns to apply basic renal physiology principles towards the broad spectrum of nephrological diseases. As such, the fellowship provides a rich clinical experience in electrolyte and acid-base disturbances, acute and chronic kidney disease, hypertension, acute and chronic dialysis, glomerulonephritis and nephrolithiasis. In addition, adequate training is provided in transplantation, renal pathology and continuous renal replacement therapy. Ambulatory training is provided in chronic kidney disease, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

All applications must be submitted through ERAS.
