About the Program
Baylor College of Medicine is located in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, considered the largest medical center in the world. Our nephrology fellows principally train at five affiliated hospitals and several clinics located in and around the medical center.
The 2023 U.S News & World Report annual list of top graduate schools places Baylor College of Medicine in the top 25 rank of all U.S. medical schools. With that coveted ranking, the establishment of the O'Brien Kidney Research Center and a generous endowment from Dr. Howard Selzman in 2015, the Section of Nephrology provides a strong infrastructure for its clinical and research programs.
The Section of Nephrology at Baylor College of Medicine is dedicated to excellence in teaching future nephrologists for both academic and clinical practices. We also advocate research careers of promising physicians and scientists. Our goal is to provide the best patient care for patients with kidney diseases. Our faculty are recognized nationally and internationally in research, education and clinical care.
The Nephrology Fellowship was established in 1968 and over 45 years, we have graduated more than 175 nephrologists. Each year, we select four to five fellows from a competitive pool of applicants. The program is designed to provide physicians with the background to complete the nephrology subspecialty Boards and to enter into practice as highly qualified nephrologists.
