About the Program

The Adult Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited combined adult and pediatric nephrology fellowship, which began in 2016. This is a joint partnership between the nephrology divisions at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Since 2016, we have successfully matched three candidates who started with adult nephrology rotations. This position is filled for 2022. The 2023 position is currently open.

  • This is a four-year training program, with one clinical year each at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children's Hospital, along with two years of research and other scholarly activities
  • The eligible candidates are graduates of an ACGME-accredited medicine or pediatrics residency program
  • Fellows graduating from this program would be eligible for both ABP and ABIM nephrology board exams
  • This is a unique opportunity to pursue novel niche areas that span the pediatric and adult populations
  • The curriculum designed for this position is relatively flexible to meet the interests of the candidate as long as the ABP and ABIM requirements are met
