Outline of Curriculum

Pediatric Nephrology fellows at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan are required to complete 10 months of clinical service as well 20 months of research with 4 weeks of vacation per year.

Although the first year of training primarily focuses on clinical training, the Fellow is expected to begin their research in the first year. They have one month dedicated to explore the research prospects, available facilities, and the available mentorship. The fellow attends the mandatory monthly research meetings in the Division to develop an overview on the current research activities in the division and identify areas of interest.

Starting from the first year, fellows’ attend the mandatory weekly core lectures sponsored by the children’s Research Center of Michigan (CRCM). Fellows are required to attend these lectures and, more importantly, come prepared to ask questions about the topic. The lectures during this last academic year were devoted to hypothesis development, study design, data management, statistical analysis, IRB procedures, issues related to research with pharmaceutical companies, and bioethics.
