The nephrology program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center began in 2007. We offer two positions each year through the National Resident Matching Program. We currently offer a 2 year training program.
The clinical facilities utilized by the program include the Nebraska Medical Center which is a 650 bed facility, and the 100 bed Omaha VA Medical Center. The Division of Nephrology directs 5 outpatient dialysis units, and provides care for over 250 chronic dialysis patients, including peritoneal and home hemodialysis. The Division of Nephrology plays an active role in the renal transplant program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, providing consultation/care to patients before, during, as well as long-term follow-up post transplant. The transplant program averages approximately 160 kidney and kidney-pancreas transplants annually. Additionally, we have recently initiated an interventional nephrology program which fellows may choose to participate in.
