The Application Process
Division of Nephrology
Fellowship Training Program
Thank you for your interest in the Georgetown University Medical Center Fellowship Training Program in Nephrology. The Nephrology Fellowship Program offers one year of clinical training followed by either one year of clinical research or, for outstanding fellows, two years of NIH funded basic sciences research which prepares them to become independent investigators in leading academic institutions. Rigorous clinical training during the first year combined with the continuity outpatient and dialysis clinics during the rest of the training prepares strong clinical nephrologists and fulfils the ABIM requirement for the Specialty Board eligibility in Nephrology and Hypertension.
Applications will be accepted from July 1 through August 15, 2012 for the fellowship year beginning July 1, 2013.

How to Apply through ERAS
You should apply for the Nephrology Fellowship Program at Georgetown University Hospital through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). ERAS is an internet-based applications process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit fellowship applications, letters of recommendation, Program Director letters, medical transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants, residency programs and medical schools to fellowship program directors using the Internet. For information about the process or to register for ERAS on the web, please go to www.aamc.org/eras.
Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, Georgetown will contact candidates about the possibility of an interview. Interviews will be scheduled in the late winter and spring.
Once you have applied to The Nephrology Fellowship Program and accepted our invitation to interview with our faculty, fellows and staff, we hope you will choose to rank Georgetown at the top of your list of desirable training programs in Nephrology Medicine.
Georgetown participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Nephrology Medicine. This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors' preferences for applicants.
