The mission of Duke Nephrology is to combine the delivery of outstanding clinical services with world-class research and teaching. To this end, the programs in the division are structured to address the most pressing needs facing patients with kidney disease. The division is led by Myles Wolf, MD, MMSc.
Areas of emphasis include the treatment of end-stage kidney disease, transplantation, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, glomerular disease, education and bone/mineral metabolism.
Train with us
The Duke Nephrology Fellowship Training Program excels in all aspects of nephrology, including renal replacement therapy, glomerular disorders, electrolyte abnormalities, transplantation, hypertension, education, global health, informatics, and clinical and basic science research. We offer a 2 year track that features a clinical concentration in an area of interest or a 3-4 year track focusing on traditional research, education or informatics.
Research is our core
The division is engaged in several active areas of investigation. From biomedical research, to epidemiology, to translational research, and clinical trials. An emphasis for several investigators is understanding the intersection between kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.
