The American Society of Nephrology (ASN), in collaboration with a research team from George Washington University (GWU), is conducting its 2nd annual survey of fellows training in nephrology. The goal of this important survey is to better understand developments in the marketplace for nephrologists.
The survey gathers data on the types of positions, practice settings, and geographic locations where the next generation of nephrologists will be working. Responses will help determine whether there is an imbalance in different practice settings or regions. By administering the survey on an annual basis, the research team hopes to understand trends in nephrology fellows' plans and job market experiences over time. This is a great opportunity for nephrology fellows to share their experiences with the nephrology community.
Survey Results will be presented at ASN Kidney Week 2015, November 3–8 in San Diego, CA, and GWU and ASN will publish a final report by the end of the year. A report from last year’s survey, Findings from the 2014 Survey of Nephrology Fellows, is available at https://www.asn-online.org/education/training/workforce/.
ASN Fellow Members should have received an email with information on how to participate in the survey directly from ASN. If you haven’t received it or have any questions about the survey, please contact ASN Content and Media Analyst Kurtis Pivert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We urge all fellows to complete this important survey.
