Section of Nephrology and Hypertension

fellowshipgroup

The Section of Nephrology and Hypertension in the Department of Medicine at the School of Medicine of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of medical care to patients, advancing the science and art of nephrology through research and discovery, and training physicians and investigators to become leaders in the medicine and science of nephrology.

The Section of Nephrology and Hypertension sees patients with a wide range of conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, and all stages of chronic kidney disease, as well as patients in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The section has its own interventional nephrology unit as well as faculty who are dedicated to clinical practice, research, and teaching.

Our goal is to provide the highest-quality care while helping patients manage their conditions. Though the section provides expertise in all areas of nephrology, we also have faculty with additional expertise in specific areas; these faculty members provide care through specialty clinics and teach medical students, medical residents, nephrology fellows, and other doctors in the community. The Section of Nephrology and Hypertension has a close association with the School of Medicine's clinical and basic science departments and provides medical care through our clinics to approximately 5,000 patients annually.

The Nephrology fellowship program emphasizes clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of renal diseases and hypertension, as well as a basic understanding of renal physiology and pathophysiology.

The Section of Nephrology and Hypertension has an active research program and is committed both to investigating the underlying causes of kidney disease and to finding new ways to treat it.
