Resident/Medical Students Electives
The University of Maryland Medical Center, Division of Nephrology is committed to the teaching of young physicians and medical students. We also recognize that Nephrology is undergoing sub-specialization and rapid changes as a specialty in today’s dynamic medical landscape. As a part of put efforts to increase and streamline nephrology education, we are offering the following three electives
A two to four week rotation on the inpatient consult service, covering various aspects of AKI, ESRD and encompassing kidney pathology with diseases like GN and vasculitis. This is the basic Nephrology thinking and problem solving elective. The elective in General Nephrology can be chosen by the student/ resident to be either at the VA medical center or at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
A two to four week elective including rounds on post-transplant patients with the transplant team. The residents / medical students will have a chance of directly seeing and treating patients with acute and chronic rejection, observe plasma exchange as a therapy, and observe the transplant surgery with the surgeons in the OR.
Critical Care Nephrology
A two to four week elective with rounds with the MICU Nephrology team. This rotation will cover acute care nephrology patients and hands on experience with CRRT, plasma exchange and ICU ultrasound specific to kidney disease and assessment of volume status.
Two electives can be combined together for two weeks each to make a total of four weeks.
We look forward to your participation and would strongly encourage interested residents/medical students to join our team for an exciting learning experience.
