How our program prepared him: "The fellowship provided excellent exposure and training in nephrology procedures, transplant and interventional nephrology, basic POCUS, leadership, QI, promotion of a growth mindset, and longitudinal career planning and development. My mentor was an honest evaluator, and she motivated me to achieve more than I thought was possible for myself."
