Application/Interview Schedule

This page was designed to provide an overview of the Pediatric Nephrology training program at Yale. To learn more about our program, we cordially urge you to submit an application and visit us. Faculty and current fellows would welcome the chance to discuss the opportunities in Pediatric Nephrology at Yale.

Postdoctoral training in Pediatric Nephrology is offered according to requirements for sub-specialty board certification, which is three (or more) years in duration. Fellows enter the fellowship program after completion of residency in Pediatrics. Fellows may apply to the Investigative Medicine Graduate Program in patient–based or laboratory–based research. Trainees in this program can earn a Ph.D. degree after a minimum of four years of research training including graduate courses. Research fellowship is offered to individuals who completed clinical training elsewhere.

We are now accepting applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please visit the ERAS Web site to access the on-line application. You should include:

  • A copy of your curriculum vitae.
  • Personal statement describing your career goals and previous research experience (if any).
  • Arrange for three (3) letters of recommendation to be submitted, from faculty members who are familiar with your past performance.
  • Applicants interested in a research fellowship, please contact Dr. Tufro directly.

Once we review your application and letters of recommendation, we would be pleased to arrange an interview for you. We cordially invite you to visit our program and gain first-hand knowledge about living and learning Pediatric Nephrology at Yale. If you feel that additional information would be helpful, please contact us via telephone or email.

Salary support for our fellows is provided by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health. This grant provides salary support for U.S. citizens, or individuals holding permanent residency in the United States. Yale University School of Medicine is committed to increasing representation of women and members of minority groups among its students, residents, postdoctoral trainees and faculty, and we particularly encourage applications from such candidates.
