The Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital Joint Nephrology Fellowship accepts applications through the AAMC Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Interested applicants should submit their application through ERAS when the application cycle opens on July 1st. We strongly recommend that applicants complete the ERAS application process as early as possible as this will facilitate timely review and interview scheduling.

Outstanding candidates will be invited for a one-day visit and interview at BWH and MGH in September/October. Applicants are encouraged to review research faculty profiles prior to their interviews to identify potential faculty mentors with similar research interests with whom they might like to meet. We do sponsor H-1B or J-1 visas for exceptional fellowship candidates.

We will be participating in the Nephrology Fellowship Match using the NRMP system and its match schedule. Match Day for fellows beginning July of any given year will be in December of the previous year.

Things You’ll Need

  1. Three letters of reference from mentors, including one from the Internal Medicine Program Director.
  2. A personal statement that discusses your academic interests (research/clinical).
  3. An updated CV
  4. USMLE Transcript
  5. Medical School Transcript (MSPE)

Fall 2020 BWH/MGH Joint Nephrology Fellowship Interview Dates

***Please note that in the context of Covid-19, ERAS application timelines have shifted. Though applicants may submit applications beginning July 1, our program will not be reviewing applications until August 12 in accordance with ERAS policies and timelines. We understand that COVID-19 may have impacted the residency experiences of many applicants and that you may not have had the chance to participate in planned activities such as electives or research. Rest assured that we will take a holistic approach to the review of your application materials.

In order to accommodate as many qualified candidates as possible and limit the burden, cost, and uncertainty of travel, all interview day experiences and meetings will be conducted virtually, including opportunities for applicants to meet and speak with current fellows, on the following dates:

September 8, 15, 16, 30
October 6, 7, 13, 14
