About Nephrology Business Leadership

Launched in 2016 by U.S. Renal Care,

the UC San Diego School of Medicine, and Dallas Renal Group, Nephrology Business Leadership is a unique weeklong program tailored to second year nephrology fellows preparing to begin a career in nephrology.

Rotations are designed to provide nephrology fellows with an opportunity to complement the clinical skills gained through their fellowship program with learning modules focused on the economics and business aspects of private practice.

NBLU brings together a diverse group

of practicing nephrologists, hospital and dialysis provider executives, and other professionals who will share their insights with fellows on leadership and advocacy in medicine.

Attendees with leave the NBLU program with a stronger understanding of the business of nephrology, and how it fits into the complex and evolving healthcare landscape.
