The UM difference

A dedication to excellence.

Message from Dr. Lenz,
Program Director

Welcome to the Nephrology Fellowship Training Program! As Training Program Director I welcome you to explore this website and learn more about the exciting possibilities our program has to offer. The philosophy of the Program is to develop a commitment and dedication to excellence in patient care, teaching, and research in an environment that emphasizes professionalism in all levels of activity. Our goal is to provide advanced education and training in a way that is exciting and challenging so that our graduates acquire the skill and expertise to have successful careers in Nephrology.

We offer a novel and creative two-year program that delivers outstanding training in all aspects of clinical nephrology while also allowing the trainee to tailor their education to their own interests. In addition, the trainee can apply for an optional third training year in our ASN/AST approved transplantation fellowship at the time of applying for the 2 year program. Similar third years focused on research and critical care athways are in the planning stages and should be available very soon. I hope you take the opportunity to visit Miami and see the exciting career pathways our program can offer you.
Oliver Lenz, MD MBA.
