The division is focused on providing outstanding medical care. Our 17 faculty members, who have encountered virtually every condition in the field, are dedicated to state-of-the-art care provided with compassion and sensitivity.

In addition to providing outstanding medical care, we are committed to advancing knowledge of kidney disease and its treatment through science, discovery, and innovation. We are at the forefront of research into a large number of critical aspects of kidney disease and provide our patients access to the newest treatment options. At one of the most productive laboratories in the country, we continue to advance knowledge on the mechanisms of kidney disease and treatment. Discoveries from our laboratory are presented at national meetings and published in scientific journals. The clinical research team works directly with patients at the forefront of the clinical science of kidney disease. Various members of our faculty disseminate this knowledge through publication of scientific work, serving on editorial boards of major scientific journals, and via new media.

Another major focus is on teaching. Our teaching and fellowship programs have gained worldwide renown for our innovative approaches to creating an environment of learning and discovery

The Division of Nephrology is devoted to outstanding patient care, basic science, clinical research, and innovative medical education. Our goal is to improve the lives of patients with kidney disease and hypertension through sensitive, patient-focused care, discovery through research, and teaching the next generation of skilled and compassionate kidney physicians.
