The ASN Task Force on the Future of Nephrology was charged with reconsidering all aspects of the future of nephrology to determine how to best prepare nephrology fellows for the challenges and opportunities the future will bring. Since April, the task force has been meeting regularly with the goal of delivering its report by October 2022 to fulfill requests from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). These organizations determine what changes should be made to nephrology certification and recertification (ABIM) and fellowship training programs (ACGME). To learn more about the task force, its charge, and membership, please refer to the April, June, July, and August 2022 Kidney News articles (1).
A critical aspect of this work has been a series of stakeholder listening sessions with the kidney community. The task force has valued this input and has been listening closely as it works to develop its recommendations. The goal of this article is to inform you about what we have been hearing.
