Education

Pediatrics Fellowship Graduation, June 2018. Mary Leonard, Paul Grimm, Cecile Fajardo '18 with daugher, Candice Sheldon '18, Kim Sands


As one of the oldest pediatric nephrology fellowship programs in the US, we have recently expanded to train 3 fellows per year for a maximum of 9 in the program by 2020. Our goal is to train physician scientists in clinical excellence and to foster individual academic, research, and career interests to prepare trainees for their leadership role in this field.  We are one of only a handful of programs nationwide that consistently fill match slots.

Education is integral to the mission of the Pediatric Nephrology Division, and we are active in educating all levels of medical trainees as well as allied health staff. Our Division members consistently receive excellent evaluations on their lectures and teaching. Learn more about training with us. Applications currently open for interviews starting early September 2018 (3 open slots).

Our fellows train to become leaders in research and scholarship. We provide the opportunities, tools, mentorship and experience needed to succeed as physician scholars whether entering fellowship with limited exposure to scholarship or having completed a PhD. Fellows will have access to research mentorship and projects that can reveal the mysteries of bone damage in kids with chronic disease or perfect management of pediatric kidney transplants through basic science research. The doors of Stanford are open to our fellows and they will not have far to reach to find nationally and internationally recognized innovators and leaders from whom to learn.
