ASN-GWU Nephrology Fellows Report Details Trainee’s Demographics, Job Market Experiences

ASN has published a new analysis of the 2014 nephrology fellows survey. The report, the second in a series produced in collaboration with George Washington University investigators, found that although more women are choosing nephrology careers, the majority of 1st and 2nd year fellows were male (61%). Also, most nephrology fellows are international medical graduates (64%). Approximately 43% of fellows looking for employment reported changing their plans because of limited practice opportunities, and nephrology fellows’ perceptions of local job opportunities (within 50 miles of their training site) were disappointing, although less so for national job opportunities. ASN encourages you to join the discussion of the report’s findings on Twitter using the #NephWorkforce hashtag.
