Diversity and Inclusion in Yale Nephrology

The Yale Section of Nephrology is committed to promoting diversity and to the advancement of women and other under-representative minorities within the field of nephrology. 

  • Diversity across a broad range of attributes, experiences and characteristics is what makes us uniquely who we are. 
  • A Diverse fellowship creates new ideas, exposes us to differing perspectives, and allows us to perform at a higher level. 
  • Our fellowship program understands that to achieve that important objective, we need to recruit and train nephrology fellows who represent the global environment with which we will practice and live. 
  • We coordinate with efforts within the university and the medical school to increase and retain underrepresented minority fellows and faculty.

We welcome applications from international medical graduates who possess outstanding academic backgrounds and have done residency training at an ACGME accredited internal medicine residency program in the United States. Yale University is a Global University and we feel that part of our mission is to provide training to the best applicants from around the world.

If you are an underrepresented minority applying in the field of nephrology, we strongly encourage you to apply to our fellowship program. If you have any questions or concerns about the application process please contact us.
