Investigators discovered that kidney failure symptoms tended to increase or remain unchanged between transplant evaluation and transplantation; however, three months after transplantation, 9 of 11 symptoms lessened.
As the 2021-2022 interviewing and recruitment season gets underway, ASN continues to strongly encourage nephrology fellowship programs to conduct all interviews with applicants during the recruitment cycle remotely. Health, safety, and equity are key factors of this best practice.
ASN recently established a Loan Mitigation Pilot Program to decrease the loan burden of those entering the field of nephrology and bolster interest in the specialty. The society has committed $2,700,000 to reaching those who are considering nephrology as a career. The 5-year program will provide financial support for trainees, focusing on individuals historically underrepresented in medicine.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2021 American Society of Nephrology Lifetime and Mid-Career Awards. They have helped to improve the lives of patients with kidney diseases; advanced research, treatments, and patient care; and mentored trainees and junior faculty.
