Academic and Clinical Excellence

Our division offers educational programs and clinical research opportunities in conjunction with the clinical care provided at Fletcher Allen Health Care.

Our faculty has expertise in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute and chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, kidney stones, fluid and electrolytes disorders, and the medical management of kidney transplantation.

Research & Education

We pursue excellence in patient care through the improvement of understanding of the disease processes, and the development of new strategies in the treatment of individuals with kidney disease.

The advancement of science is dependent upon a commitment to education. Our two-year nephrology fellowship program gives fellows the opportunity to acquire solid training from our faculty physcians in the care of patients with kidney diseases, and in basic or clinical research.
