Interventional Nephrology Fellowship Program

Interventional Nephrology Fellowship Program.jpg

Azura Vascular Care has a long established (first as American Access Care, later as Fresenius Vascular Care and now as Azura) Interventional Nephrology Fellowship program for talented Nephrologists with a strong desire to expand their professional development while improving the lives of dialysis patients.

The year-long programs are currently based in our Brooklyn, NY and Philadelphia, PA vascular centers. The program consists of one year of didactic and practical training in areas such as Normal and Variant Anatomy of the Vascular Access, Imaging and Radiation Safety, and Sedation and Analgesia. This is followed by two years of clinical work including a proctored component. This program has become a primary means for Azura Vascular Care to develop highly qualified interventionalists to support future expansion opportunities.

In addition, our Arlington, VA center has an Interventional Radiology (IR) fellowship affiliated with Georgetown University. Plans are underway to expand this program to additional locations.

This program is intended for nephrologists with an interest in becoming Interventional Nephrologists.  The participants have little to no prior experience working in the outpatient interventional vascular space.
