Chief, Division of Nephrology

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Internal Medicine, invites nominations and applications for the position of Division Chief of Nephrology.

The Nephrology Division has a rich tradition at UT Southwestern since the 1960s, with graduates and former faculty members populating the leadership of major academic medical centers in this country and across the world.

The faculty and fellows manage the nephrology services at four hospitals (Parkland Memorial Hospital, Clements University Hospital, Zale-Lipshy Hospital, and the Dallas VA Medical Center) with distinct populations and patterns of disease that provide a rich source of clinical material for research and education.
