Division of Nephrology

West Tennessee's only comprehensive academic program in Nephrology.
Provides acute and chronic hemodialysis care, chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, and full-time consultation service.

The Division of Nephrology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center has a tripartite mission:  to mentor, to discover, and to serve.

The Division of Nephrology was established in the 1960s and has been continuously involved in patient care, nephrology training, and nephrology research. The division provides both acute and chronic hemodialysis care, chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, and full-time consultation service in each of the affiliated medical centers. There is an active transplant center at the Methodist University Hospital.

Currently, the division is made up of eight full-time and one part-time faculty physicians. Our physicians are subspecialized in the Methodist University Hospital, Regional One Health, and the Memphis VA Medical Center.

The division is dedicated to training individuals who have completed their residency. The nephrology fellowship training program is a two-year program with an optional third year for research. We maintain a total of seven fellows each year. 

The training program emphasizes training in clinical nephrology, such that all trainees have strong exposure to nephrology consultation, acute and chronic hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and renal transplantation. The high faculty to trainee ratio allows for optimal faculty-trainee interactions.
