one-year advanced fellowship seeks to develop the next generation of international leaders in nephrology.
Training in glomerular kidney diseases is provided at the prestigious Northwell Health Nephrology Center for Glomerular Diseases. The fellow will develop expertise in managing complex glomerular disease cases both in the inpatient and outpatient settings, including a rotation at the Division of Rheumatology for intensive training in SLE and ANCA vasculitis. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in state-of-the-art research in various forms of glomerular diseases. Training includes working with our kidney pathologists, who read over 600 kidney biopsies per year, spanning a wide variety of pathology from the entire New York region.
Onco-nephrology is rapidly developing as a critically important sub-field in nephrology. The fellow will develop expertise in a wide range of cancer-related kidney diseases, working closely in the inpatient and outpatient settings with faculty who are leaders in this field. The fellow will also rotate with inpatient hematology and oncology teams and care for patients with multiple myeloma, renal cell cancer and bone marrow transplantation.
Established in 2008, the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell has already received accolades as a leading, innovative training center.

The scope, size and diversity of the health system help to create a rich set of opportunities.
