The Division of Nephrology is active in both the University of Kansas Medical Center and the Veterans Administration Medical Center. The activities of this division center on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with medical diseases of the kidney. Clinical clerks are assigned patients on the inpatient service, the outpatient clinic and in the outpatient chronic hemodialysis unit. The clerks are expected to function at a subintern level. Under the guidance of the house staff they provide the primary work up, write the admitting orders and assist in performing procedures such as peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. Clerks and house staff meet regularly with the attending staff nephrologist to discuss specific topics in renal physiology and pathogenesis. A formal nephrology conference for all housestaff and students is held weekly. The clerk is encouraged to participate in one of the ongoing research projects. Three positions are available at the University of Kansas Medical Center and two at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Offered in modules I-XII. Prerequisite: MED 900.
