Baylor College of Medicine is located in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, considered the largest medical center in the world. The Nephrology fellows train at our affiliated hospitals located in the medical center.
The U.S. News & World Report ranked Baylor College of Medicine as one of the top 20 medical schools for research in 2014. With that coveted ranking and with the establishment of the O'Brien Kidney Research Center in 2002, 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.
The Nephrology Fellowship was established in 1968 and over 45 years, we have graduated almost 140 nephrologists. The mission of the program is to provide outstanding training in the subspecialty of nephrology, which prepares physicians with the background to complete the Nephrology Subspecialty Boards and to enter into practice as highly qualified nephrologists.
