Internal Medicine and Pediatric Trainees Educational Stipends

NKF invites Internal Medicine and Pediatric trainees to apply for sponsorship to attend the 2016 Spring Clinical Meetings.  The intent of this sponsorship program is to encourage highly qualified and interested individuals to enter the field of Nephrology.  We hope that by providing Internal Medicine and Pediatric trainees a concentrated exposure to the cutting edge in clinical and experimental Nephrology in a stimulating learning environment, we may be able to shed light on the broader aspects of our subspecialty than what house staff experience on the wards in their day to day routine. The program is intended for those individuals who may be intersted in but are not already committeed to a Nephrology fellowship program.  For additional information and to apply, click here.
