The UIC Nephrology Fellowship is a two year program with an optional third year focusing on research. Fellows spend the first year of training in the outpatient and inpatient nephrology care services where they assume primary responsibilities as consultants. The inpatient and ambulatory experiences provide extensive exposure to a wide range of pathology in three different health care systems (University of Illinois Hospital, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center, and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County).



The primary goal of the UIC Nephrology Fellowship is to ensure that trainees acquire the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed for the practice of nephrology. The curriculum is designed to ensure progressive levels of responsibility, and has the flexibility and depth to ensure optimal training for both community and academic settings.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
