This elective is for students with an interest in learning more about how to diagnose and treat kidney disease.  Students will also learn more about dialysis, such as the indications, complications, and general management issues.  The students will be members of an inpatient consult team comprised of a fellow and faculty from the section of Nephrology.  An intern or resident may also be a part of the team.  Students are expected to participate in daily rounds with the fellow and attendings and attend all Nephrology conferences.  Students will be assigned a panel of patients from which they are expected to write daily progress notes and present on rounds.  A student panel should not exceed four patients.
