General Clinical Nephrology

This elective is open to Clerkship students. The elective is a consultative experience in clinical nephrology under the direct supervision of the Renal Attending Staff and Renal Resident. The student will see new consultations and discuss them fully with the renal resident daily and with the Attending Staff on rounds. The consultation service enables the student to see problems in acid-base and electrolyte disturbances, acute and chronic renal failure, glomerulonephritis and renal transplantation. They will be expected to read around their cases and to be capable of writing a formal consultation on each patient they see. In addition, the student has the option to spend time in the peritoneal and Hemodialysis Units. The student is given the opportunity to use the renal Laboratory to learn skills in urinalysis and will be exposed to pathology as it relates to renal biopsies. There will also be opportunity to learn the placement of acute vascular access catheters.

In addition to seeing patients, the Division holds a weekly Journal Club, a weekly Research or Pathology conference, a weekly Formal Teaching Round and a weekly Informal Round to discuss the patients of interest. The Renal Clinic is held on Thursday mornings and offers students an opportunity to see newly referred out-patients, and to examine interesting urine sediments by microscopy.

Renal Transplantation

This elective will be supervised by Dr. R. M. Cantarovich of the Transplantation Service. A long lead-time is needed with prior agreement being reached between student and supervisor. The student will participate in the out-patient transplant clinics to view chronic problems of patients, some indoor experience to review problems of newly transplanted patients and when possible, operating experience to view the actual insertion of the transplanted kidney. In addition to clinical experience, there will be reading assignments.

Combined Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Hemodialysis

The student will be exposed to patients who are being treated either by CAPD or hemodialysis on a chronic basis. They will make rounds in the hemodialysis suite and attend the CAPD clinic. They will be assigned some special topic for data collection and reading assignments. Contact Dr. A. Cybulsky for more information.
