We have approximately 37 faculty members, 30 of them full-time, dedicated to clinical practice, research and teaching in Nephrology/Hypertension. The division has a robust research agenda comprising of activities ranging from bench to bedside and are actively engaged in research activities spanning over the Chicago and Evanston campuses. In addition, the division has close ties and shared training with the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The division’s research portfolio includes over $4M in annual grants. The division currently trains eight fellows in our ACGME-accredited fellowship. The Nephrology fellowship emphasizes clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of renal diseases and hypertension, and a basic understanding of renal physiology and pathophysiology. Through Northwestern Medicine facilities, the division faculty provide clinical service, with approximately 6500 patient’s visits annually.
