The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is a regional and national leader in educating students and residents in primary care. Fellows are fully integrated into both medical education and patient care, often experiencing one-on-one interaction between teacher and student.
The focus of the Nephrology Fellowship Program is comprehensive training in nephrology throughout the required two postgraduate years. Nephrology fellows participate in every aspect of patient care and assume increasing responsibility appropriate to the level of their training. All requirements and recommendations of the American Board of Internal Medicine for experience and instruction are satisfied during the two years of training.
The nephrology faculty of the Department of Medicine recognizes the importance of establishing an environment conducive to learning for our fellow physicians. Accordingly, the fellowship adheres to guidelines providing for:
|Paid Vacation||3 weeks paid vacation|
|Sick Leave||Residents accrue 15 days of sick leave annually.|

The Nephrology fellowship maintains affiliations with Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH). The Department of Nephrology provides inpatient services to this hospital as well as the J. Robert Pritchard Dialysis Center.
We are committed to excellence in ambulatory care experiences for our fellows. All fellows have a ½ day continuity clinic per week of the two years of fellowship. This clinic will be held at the J. Robert Pritchard Dialysis Center. Fellows are given graduated levels of responsibility in the clinic as they progress through the fellowship.
