The nephrology department consists of eight physicians and one nurse practitioner, backed by excellent support staff.
Teaching responsibilities include oversight of four nephrology fellows, residents from our internal medicine program, and medical students from affiliated institutions. An academic teaching appointment is available through our affiliation with Temple University School of Medicine. Opportunities for clinical and translational investigation are available through on-campus research centers.
