Nephrology Education

The Division of Nephrology has an educational curriculum designed to meet the overlapping learning needs of Nephrology residents, advanced fellows, and a diverse group of practicing nephrologists in Southern Alberta. Our scheduled educational activities include residents’ academic half day, weekly renal pathology rounds, Nephrology grand rounds, and QI/complex case rounds.

Nephrology Residency Training

We offer a two years residency training program that follows the Competency-by-Design model and is fully accredited by RCPSC. In addition to clinical training based upon achievement of entrustable professional activities, we have additional local requirements that include participation in research and quality improvement projects in addition to teaching medical students and residents. Training within our program is flexible in order to allow us to accommodate the diverse needs of nephrologists who might wish to follow a clinical, clinician educator, or clinician scientist career path following their residency training.

Advanced Fellowship Training

We offer advanced fellowship training to provide learners who have successfully completed their Nephrology residency training the opportunity for further develop their clinical and/or research skills. These positions are funded and include Advanced Fellowships in kidney transplantation, home dialysis modalities, and glomerulonephritis.

For inquiries related to residency training or advanced fellowship training, please contact Dr. Juliya Hemmett (juliya.hemmett@albertahealthservices.ca).
