Program Description

The University of Texas Health San Antonio/San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium nephrology fellowship program has been combined and is based at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

We are committed to training competent and compassionate, mission ready Nephrologists through increasing level of autonomy. We require and encourage a loving and supportive environment that pushes fellows to their full potential. Our graduates leave here ready to practice independently and with confidence whether stationed at a remote military treatment facility or large training medical center or deployed in support of military operations.

Program Highlights

  • Three large hospitals (University Hospital, South Texas Veteran’s Administration and Brooke Army Medical Center) that provide exposure to complementary and diverse patient populations and environments of care.
  • An emphasis on work-life balance facilitated by the substantial size of the fellowship program and advanced practitioners.
  • Night float system enhancing quality of life and abolishing fatigue among fellows.
  • Multiple electives and track opportunities (Cardiorenal, interventional nephrology and critical care) to foster a broad clinical exposure tailored to the interest of the fellow.
  • Significant contributions to the innovations in renal medicine, including the National Institutes of Health-sponsored Kidney Precision Medicine Project and several other clinical trials supporting a multitude of clinical, translational and bench research opportunities to the fellows.
  • Hands-on training in a 5-star rated and one of the largest free standing outpatient dialysis programs in Texas which also provides training in home dialysis and medical directorship.

Additional unique features of our program include: Supporting live donor and deceased donor kidney transplants, Supporting the Level 1 Trauma Center mission, specifically kidney replacement therapy in gunshot victims, motor vehicle accidents, Kidney injury in burn victims and calciphylaxis, and medical care of battle trauma. Applicants are encouraged to read additional details on the University of Texas Health San Antonio Nephrology Fellowship website.
