OSU Medical Center
This is a two-year sub-specialty training program designed to develop the analytical and procedural skills required to excel as a clinical nephrologist. In addition, this program will serve as a foundation for advanced training in a clinical nephrology subspecialty.
The program emphasizes a comprehensive knowledge of renal physiology and pathophysiology. Also, clinical aspects of nephrology including the spectrum of renal, fluid and electrolyte, acid-base, and hypertensive disorders as well as metabolic bone disease are featured. Finally, appropriate attention is devoted to the conceptual and procedural aspects of renal replacement therapy including various forms of peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, continuous renal replacement and renal transplantation.
The program will accept one trainee every year and each will train for a minimum of two years. Trainees are required to demonstrate a high level of professionalism with respect to the educational process and patient care. Osteopathic philosophy will permeate every aspect of this training program.
