The Nephrology and Hospice & Palliative Medicine fellowship training programs of the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, and the University of North Carolina have collaborated to create a combined 2-year training program through the ACGME’s Advancing Innovation in Residency Education (AIRE) program.

The combined fellowship will lead to ABIM board eligibility in both disciplines. Each participating institution anticipates recruiting one carefully selected applicant into this program to start training in July 2021. Candidates will submit materials through ERAS, and a special track in the NRMP match will be used for application to the program. This new training program will integrate academic and clinical experiences in nephrology and hospice and palliative medicine to produce skillful nephrologists who can address the enormous need for palliative care in the practice of nephrology, and hospice and palliative medicine specialists who possess expertise in kidney supportive care.
