Program Overview

The University of the Philippines College of Medicine – Philippine General Hospital was the first institution accredited by the Philippine Society of Nephrology to have a formal training program for the field of Nephrology in the country.  The first nephrology training fellow was Dr. Josefino Ramos who is now practicing in Davao City.  Since the development of the UP-PGH subspecialty training program in Nephrology, the section has produced 102 graduates already and these graduates are now leaders of Medicine and Nephrology in their own locale, be it in Metro Manila, in their respective provinces, or abroad. 


The two-year fellowship training program provides the trainee with the clinical experience and expert guidance needed to fulfil the requirements to become a diplomate and eventually fellow of the Philippine Society of Nephrology.  Three to four fellows are accepted every year.  Trainees are given the opportunity to manage cases in the outpatient clinics twice a week and in the general medical wards and the pay wards all year round, and referrals from various sections and departments in the hospital requiring a nephrologist’s inputs.  The fellows are also expected to be able to perform basic hemodialysis and chronic peritoneal dialysis procedures. They are also expected to produce at least 2 research outputs (prospective/retrospective).


The section also conducts a chronic renal disease (CRD) class periodically in fulfilment of its commitment to the education of patients and their families as well as the general public.
