“It is one of the strengths and the appeals of our profession that we encompass so many aspects of medical science in our care of our patients and in our study of the mechanisms of kidney function and diseases.”
Dr. Harris

Fifty years ago this year, a group of illustrious Nephrologists and prominent Internists met to form the American Society of Nephrology. Nephrology as a subspecialty had arisen both from studies of renal physiology and from studies and clinical activities related to metabolic and hemodynamic alterations related to kidney failure. As a field, it had clinical roots in cardiology. Indeed, the first renal society in the United States was the Renal Section of the Circulation Council of the American Heart Association. Although Nephrology was already an accepted subspecialty, the formation of the ASN signaled that in the United States, nephrology would no longer be considered only a branch or an offshoot of cardiology.
