Fellowships of up to $80,000 to USA clinical scientists for research in nephrology and kidney patient health care. Funding is intended to support salary, training, and equipment expenses of first and second year fellows who have completed their residency in Pediatric or Internal Medicine.

The goal of the American Kidney Fund Clinical Scientist in Nephrology (CSN) fellowship program is to improve the quality of care provided to patients with kidney diseases and to promote clinical research in nephrology. This goal is achieved by enhancing the training and education of nephrologists who desire to pursue an academic career and whose primary professional commitment is to scholarship in the provision of patient care. Awardees conduct prevention and outcomes research and receive advanced education in essential skills such as medical ethics, biostatistics and epidemiology.

Funding shall be used principally to support the candidate and his or her career development. This sum is expected to cover the individual fellow's salary (which will follow NIH Guidelines according to the post-graduate year plus comparable fringe benefits at the institution, not to exceed $55,000) as well as training-related expenses. These may include expenditures for enrollment in academic courses, computer hardware and software, and support for research, clerical supplies, and travel expenses (maximum of $2,000 per year) as required by the plan of studies and justified in the budget outlined in the application.

Successful candidates will identify an area of knowledge broadly applicable to Clinical Nephrology in which they will develop expertise and conduct research resulting in publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Such areas of study will be primarily in the non-biological sciences and will include disciplines in public health and preventive medicine, humanities, and in social and behavioral sciences. Examples are Bioethics, Health Services Research, Health Policy and Administration, Medical Decision Science, Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Health Economics. AKF will give special consideration to projects relating to clinical ethics, quality of care and quality of life. The AKF encourages the exploration of new fields of study that bear on the improvement of clinical care in nephrology.
