Nephrology/Critical Care Track
Nephrology physiology and pathophysiology clearly permeates the intensive care unit. Those individuals who wish to practice intensive care medicine built upon a foundation of nephrology can pursue our Nephrology/Critical Care Track. Fellows will matriculate on a path that consists of 2 years of clinical nephrology training, followed by a guaranteed 1 year of training in Critical Care Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship at UT Southwestern offers some of the best clinical training in the country, set in the same diverse learning environment consisting of Parkland Hospital, Clements University Hospital, and the Dallas VA Medical Center.
Applicants interested in this training pathway will preferentially rank this track in their National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) Rank List. Applicants can still rank our traditional Clinical Nephrology Track on the same NRMP Rank List if they would also accept training in nephrology alone. Our strong program has allowed us to successfully place fellows into Critical Care Fellowships after completion of the core Nephrology Fellowship.
