The mission of the Nephrology Fellowship Program at SIUH is to provide a high quality educational and research experience in the field of nephrology. The process shall involve regular teaching by the members of the Division of Nephrology and the program director. The program provides an in-depth exposure to clinical nephrology and extra-corporeal treatments in in-patient, critical care and out-patient settings.

Since the start of the Nephrology Fellowship Program there have been 10 graduating fellows. Our Fellows come to our program after completing their residency at hospitals all over the country such as: Staten Island University Hospital, New York University, Seton Hall Internal Medicine Residency Program, Coney Island Hospital, and the University of Nevada School of Medicine (Las Vegas). Our graduates have been very successful in their careers after completing their Nephrology Fellowship Program. The majority of the graduates are now Nephrologists in private practice or in hospitals in New York, West Virginia Texas and Georgia. One graduate was accepted to the Renal Transplant Program at Emory University in Georgia and is now a faculty member there. Two graduates have pursued careers with companies such as American Access and Eli Lilly and Company. Dr. El-Charabaty, the Program Director of the SIUH Nephrology Fellowship Program was also a graduate of the Program and another graduate has just joined our faculty.
