We hope you, the reader, have been pleased with the reintroduction of the Fellows Corner column of Kidney News. Thanks to wonderful leadership from Robert Rope, MD, who has been serving as feature editor, we enjoyed broad participation and believe we have delivered some very informative, poignant, and reflective content. Rob will be stepping down as he completes his third year of fellowship at Stanford and joins the nephrology faculty at Oregon Health & Science University, where he started his medical training. He looks forward to continuing his work with fellows and to bolstering interest
