The Nephrology fellowship match

Nephrology is a subspecialty that has required fellowship programs to participate in the match ("All In")

Perspectives on the Nephrology Match for Fellowship Applicants

  1. for the ASN Match Committee
    1. "
    2. In recent years, there has been a marked decline in applicants to United States nephrology programs (1). Although a multipronged approach is clearly needed to increase interest in nephrology, it is important that we ensure that our applicants/future colleagues are treated in the most fair and equitable manner possible, and we believe that 100% participation in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) is vitally important to achieving that goal. In this perspectives article, we will briefly review the evolution of the Match since it was implemented for appointment year (AY) 2009, the successes achieved, and the challenges ahead."
