Residents who wish to pursue research are strongly supported by the Division, and a research project is a mandatory component of the program. At the beginning of training, residents are informed of the Divisional members who perform research, either clinical or basic science, by the Nephrology Research Director. The Division is fortunate to have many of its faculty members participating in independent or collaborative research activities related to education, vascular calcification, clinical pharmacology, and nephrology. The renal team reports on these activities at national and international meetings.
Protected time is a priority, and each resident has protected research blocks in each year of training. There are also a number of trained epidemiologists in the Division, so residents gain valuable expertise in critical appraisal and interpretation of medical literature.
Please review the specific short biographies of Division Faculty for more information on individual reseach activities.
