Division of Nephrology
The Division of Nephrology, part of the Department of Medicine at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, offers an exceptional training experience for medical students, residents, and fellows. Our nephrologists are actively involved in educating the next generation of renal physicians and scientists. Hallmarks of our programs include close faculty mentoring, a strong commitment to education, and an innovative learning program.
Under the leadership of Nobuyuki Miyawaki, MD, division chief, our mission is to deliver uncompromising patient-centered care, guided by empathy, respect, and advanced science. We provide effective, collaborative, and socially equitable care to empower, educate, and improve the health of our patients and our communities. Through excellence in training primary care physicians and specialists with expertise in clinical nephrology, we strive to continuously improve our health system.
Fellows, residents, and medical students who train in our division work with a large and diverse patient population and gain a broad breadth of clinical experiences in inpatient and outpatient consultative nephrology and dialysis settings. We also offer a rigorous weekly conference schedule that covers the scope of nephrology.
Our two-year Nephrology Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Fellows work closely with patients from culturally diverse backgrounds and also participate in a kidney transplant rotation at the NYU Langone Transplant Institute, working alongside physicians who are leaders in the field.
Nephrology Medical Student and Resident Education
Medical students wishing to explore nephrology may enroll in electives within our division as part of NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine’s MD curriculum. Residents in the Department of Medicine’s Internal Medicine Residency can also opt to participate in rotations with our division.
Research in the division covers many topics—including hyponatremia, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and dialysis care—and is supported by funding from governmental grants as well as private sources. We seek to contribute to the understanding of the conditions we treat and to improve the quality of patients’ lives, and our findings have led to significant understanding of hyponatremia. Learn more about research at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine.
Nephrology Clinical Services
Experts in our division offer comprehensive and innovative evidence-based care in the diagnosis and management of all conditions affecting the kidneys, including the following:
- glomerulonephritis (IgA nephropathy and lupus nephritis)
- home hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, in-center hemodialysis, and continuous kidney replacement therapy (CKRT)
- hypertension and renal artery stenosis
- hyponatremia and electrolyte disorders
- kidney diseases, including acute kidney failure and polycystic and chronic kidney disease
- kidney stones
- nephrotic syndromes, such as membranous nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and diabetic nephropathy
We provide our services at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island and NYU Langone Nephrology Associates—Mineola. Our nephrologists also care for people before and after kidney transplants at the Transplant Institute. Naveed N. Masani, MD, is our director of dialysis services at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island.
