Welcome from the Program Director

Dr. KumarWelcome to the VCU Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Training program. The fellowship offered by the Division of Nephrology provides an opportunity to pursue advanced training in clinical transplant nephrology and research.

The program is designed for trainees who wish to receive outstanding educational training in order to pursue a career in either academia or private practice.  Each fellow will participate in a comprehensive transplant specific clinical training, teaching and scholarly program.

This year we are again recruiting for two fellowship positions to start their transplant nephrology fellowship training next year.  After one year of clinical training, our goal is for each fellow to have confidence in independently evaluating and managing patients with a wide variety of kidney transplant issues.

As you consider your choices of programs to complete your fellowship training, I encourage you to explore our web-site and feel free to contact me with any questions.
