Welcome to the Renal Medicine (Nephrology) Senior Residency Program. We offer you an exciting, comprehensive and well structured program focusing on aspects of clinical nephrology.

This is a 2+1 year program during which you will be exposed to a broad spectrum of renal diseases, structured supervised clinical teaching, intense inpatient consultations, hands-on procedures, supplemented by interactive lectures, reflection of learning, case based discussions and journal clubs. You can also benefit from cross-institutional elective postings and teaching opportunities at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. 

In addition, our institution prides itself on getting learners to  building resilience and adopting sound  healthy work-life balance skills.

Prior to your appointment in the program, you will need to have completed and fulfilled ACGME-I basic core specialty training in Internal Medicine.

 

Specialty-specific Educational Program and objectives

RM2 

Duration: 3 years ( 1 year at KTPH, 6 months at  TTSH, 6 months at an  accredited renal transplant  centre and an additional 1 year elective at  KTPH)

 During the first year you will learn core renal medicine and sciences  and gain experience  in  the evaluation and management of acute kidney injury, chronic kidney  disease,  disorders of fluid, acid-base and electrolytes, bone mineral      disease,  genetic and  inherited renal diseases, glomerulonephritides,      diabetic  nephropathy, renal  vascular diseases, geriatric renal medicine,      urinary tract  infections, urologic  conditions and the interactions between    drugs and the  kidney. This will be  complemented by exposure to      supervised structured  continuity clinics and  simulated and real-life      procedural competency training in  tunneled and non-  tunneled dialysis    catheter insertion and native renal biopsy. In addition, our faculty a have a strong footprint in advanced interventional nephrology (i.e., vascular access sonography, peritoneal dialysis catheter insertion and vascular access angioplasty/declotting), from whose experience you can also benefit.   

 The second year is devoted to supervised clinical exposure to principles and  practice of dialysis therapies (acute and chronic haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis  and continuous and apheretic therapies) and critical care nephrology.

RM3 Posting in pre and post renal transplant  care at a dedicated centre shall be
 towards the end of the second year or beginning of third year.

You will be strongly encouraged and mentored to pursue research projects and quality improvement audits for presentation and publication in local, regional or international meetings and journals respectively.

Our program will foremost prepare you for your exit exams in renal medicine at the end of year 3 and provide you with ample experience and entrustment for your  future role as an all-round renal medicine consultant at both inpatient and outpatient setting and the requisite interpersonal, communication skills and professionalism that come with that role.

The third year is considered an elective year whereby knowledge, approach and attitude towards patients’ care are consolidated, research projects completed and preparation for the RAC exit exams are made.
