Welcome From the Director

The Division of Nephrology at Rush University Medical Center consists of three Sections: the Section of Clinical Nephrology, the Section of Transplant Nephrology, and the Section of Nephrology Laboratory Research, each adding breadth to the training experience of Fellows at our institution. Rush University Medical Center has been the epicenter for the Collaborative Study Group (CSG), one of the premier clinical nephrology research organizations in the world. Studies done by the Collaborative Study Group have defined and continue to define the standard of care for lupus nephritis and diabetic nephropathy. The wealth of data that the CSG can provide Fellows offers abundant opportunities for clinical research projects. The recent addition of Dr. Jochen Reiser as the Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine and Director of the Section of Nephrology Laboratory research, also a Nephrologist, has brought a world class research lab to the Division of Nephrology. His work in suPAR is groundbreaking into the pathophysiology of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis: http://www.rush.edu/rumc/page-1298330462934.html

We take great pride in our training program. Most of the faculty are graduates of the program from as far back as 1985 to as recently as 2009.
