The American Kidney Fund is inviting applications for its Clinical Scientist in Nephrology (CSN) Program.
For more than thirty years, the CSN fellowship program has funded researchers whose work is designed to improve the diagnosis and treatment of and outcomes for patients living with chronic kidney disease. CSN fellows conduct prevention and outcomes research while receiving advanced training in essential skills such as medical ethics, biostatistics, and epidemiology.
Through the program, grants of up to $80,000 over two years are awarded in support of career development activities. The grant is expected to cover the individual fellow's salary (not to exceed $55,000) as well as training-related expenses. CSN fellowships are not intended as a fellowship-to-faculty transitional award. Preference will be given to applicants in the first or second year of their fellowship.
To be eligible, applicants must have completed a residency in internal medicine or pediatrics; be qualified to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine or Pediatrics; and are in the process of completing or have completed at least one year of training in Clinical Nephrology in an accredited U.S. program.
