ISN joint fellowships: nephrology training for all

Partnerships are important when trying to build a career in nephrology and get the best fellowship training. Through the Fellowship Program, ISN has partnered with some 13 organizations, societies and universities – offering a little something for everyone.

ISN Fellows receive hands-on training in advanced host institutions, allowing them to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge in basic and clinical nephrology, dialysis, transplantation, and epidemiology. The training focuses on providing the exact skills and knowledge specifically required by the home institution. The next deadline for applications is June 15, 2014.

Here is a round up of the joint fellowships currently available:
