Educational Activities

All residents attend weekly academic half-days.  These generally include presentations by faculty members, and residents also present on a regular basis. Nephrology Grand Rounds provide opportunities for cases to be presented.  During Pathology Rounds, residents attempt to interpret renal biopsy findings followed by discussions of case histories and relevant management issues.   The Division has been very successful in attracting both national and international nephrologists to speak at our rounds and speakers will often host separate teaching sessions for residents.  A bi-weekly Journal Club provides an opportunity for articles to be presented, critiqued, and discussed.
