Pediatric Critical Care Nephrology Fellowship


About Us


Acute kidney injury in the pediatric population has shifted from primary renal disease to a secondary effect of systemic illness and its treatment, leading to renal injury.

A pediatric nephrologist workforce shortage exists in many parts of the United States and in most non-Western countries. The Pediatric Critical Care Nephrology and Dialysis Fellowship program at Baylor College of Medicine, provides specialized training in nephrology for graduates of Pediatric Critical Care fellowships to foster future clinical research collaboration between pediatric nephrologists and pediatric intensivists, and to provide training in basic renal replacement therapy for critical care physicians who seek to serve geographic areas where expertise in pediatric dialysis is limited.

The fellowship is also available to graduates of pediatric nephrology fellowship programs who are interested in conducting clinical research in the area of pediatric acute kidney injury.




Renal fellows receive full funding to attend one scientific meeting annually, which includes the American Society of Nephrology (ASN), Annual Dialysis Conference (ADC) and the American Society of Pediatric Research and CRRT meetings. Many of the fellows present posters or give oral presentations at the meetings.

For information on stipends and benefits, please see the Graduate Medical Education office site.
