Welcome to the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Nephrology Fellowship
Thank you for your interest in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) Nephrology fellowship program, based in beautiful San Francisco. Our fellowship program is a 24-month ACGME accredited training program that adheres to ABIM guidelines for training in nephrology. We will accept two fellows per year through the NRMP match.
Our mission is to educate and mentor the next generation of compassionate and skilled clinicians, educators, and researchers in the field of Nephrology.
Fellows will have the opportunity to train in one of the nation’s largest integrated health systems, that provides care for a diverse patient population with respect to cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds that reflects the communities we serve.
- Fellows will train primarily out of the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco, which has a long history of clinical excellence and commitment to resident and fellow education. Here, they will develop their core knowledge in inpatient and outpatient nephrology, dialysis therapies, glomerular disease, lifestyle medicine and palliative care.
- Fellows will also train at Kaiser Permanente Oakland, a large urban medical center with a diverse patient population, where they will rotate in inpatient nephrology and palliative care.
- Fellows will train in home dialysis therapies at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clara, home to one of the largest peritoneal dialysis units with experienced faculty and nursing staff, and over 230 patients.
- Fellows will have a well-rounded kidney transplant experience. They will rotate at UCSF for inpatient and outpatient transplant, and rotate at our regional Kaiser Permanente Kidney Transplant Clinics based in SF.
- Fellows will have virtual and in-person renal pathology training at Stanford.
- In addition to these diverse clinical experiences, fellows will have the opportunity to engage in clinical research during both years of fellowship, in partnership with the KP Division of Research.
