  • They are allowed to make independent decisions in the nephrology ward, renal dialysis unit, and transplant ward.
  • Expertise in inserting central venous catheters, Permcath, and CAPD catheters is assured. They are also trained to perform ultrasound-guided kidney biopsy.
  • In the field of dialysis, they are trained with techniques of plasmapheresis, hemoperfusion for poisonings, and CRRT.
  • Renal transplantation (both living-related and deceased donor transplantation) is yet another training they are imparted.
  • The teaching schedule is rather tight with a topic discussion on Mondays & Fridays. On Thursdays, we have a nephropathology meeting.
  • Interdepartmental meeting is conducted on Wednesdays. We have a journal club on Saturdays. Case presentation by final year PG is scheduled on Tuesday.
  • They are encouraged to present research papers at regional, national, and international conferences.
