    The Division of Nephrology at UMMC supports a threefold mission:

    • Deliver cutting edge and compassionate care for all types of kidney disease.
    • Train the nephrologists of tomorrow for the state of Mississippi.
    • Improve the understanding of the nature and treatment of kidney disease through basic science and clinical research.

    The Division of Nephrology at University of Mississippi Medical Center strives to provide state-of-the-art care to the kidney patients of Mississippi. Our services include both in-hospital and outpatient consultation and full-service inpatient and outpatient dialysis. In addition, we are the only renal transplant center in Mississippi and provide comprehensive care of transplant patients in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.

    Our faculty has varied areas of academic focus and expertise that collectively allow us to provide care for unusual diseases and complicated patients as only an academic medical center can.

    We also pride ourselves on our dedication to education on all levels of the medical curriculum, teaching medical student, residents and our own nephrology fellows. The nephrology training we provide our fellows is an intensive clinical experience that includes all facets of nephrology practice.

    The division has ongoing research programs, including NIH-supported basic research projects and clinical projects related to hypertension. The material that follows will introduce you to our faculty, our fellowship program and our division activities. If you are an applicant for a fellowship position, please apply through ERAS.
