Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Division of Nephrology.

Our mission is to provide high-value patient care, promote innovative research, and foster top nephrologists of the future.  Our core values are commitment, professionalism, and collegiality.

The UW Division of Nephrology includes inpatient care at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital, Select, and Meriter Hospitals. We also provide outpatient care at Wisconsin Dialysis, Inc (WDI), UW Kidney Clinics, and UW Hospital with specialized services for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), glomerular diseases, End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), solid organ transplantation, interventional nephrology, kidney stones, and hypertension.

Active clinical, translational, and basic research studies conducted in the Division are routinely published in leading nephrology journals and presented at national and international meetings.

We are also dedicated to the future of our trainees, who are directly involved in all aspects of research, education, and patient care.  Daily educational conferences prepare our fellows for a successful future in the field of nephrology. Our graduates enjoy success in academia and private practice in positions around the globe.

As a result of our commitment to patient-centered care, UW Health Nephrology has consistently ranked in the top programs in the US News and World Report.
