Applicants must have successfully completed a three-year internal medicine residency prior to that anticipated start date of the Nephrology Fellowship Program. Applicants must have passed USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3.

UConn accepts applicants who are United States citizens, or foreign nationals who have J-1, EAD, or permanent resident status. The UConn School of Medicine/Capital Area Health Consortium does NOT sponsor H1B or O visas.

Fellows are selected from eligible applicants on the basis of their academic credentials, preparedness, ability, aptitude, communication skills, personal qualities such as motivation and integrity, and other factors.

Candidates will be selected for the NRMP rank list and order on the basis of their academic credentials, preparedness, ability, aptitude, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity as demonstrated during the interview and from their medicine programs and letters of reference. The NRMP match is binding.

No resident will be permitted to begin training without legal permission to work in the U.S. UConn is under no obligation to hold any position for any candidate who matched but who does not have legal documentation to work in the United States.

Applicants are advised to review and familiarize themselves with important information pertaining to benefits, policies and procedures, as well as a sample contract and acknowledgement statement on the Graduate Medical Education site.
