Institute of Nephrology

DaVita’s Institute of Nephrology (ION) provides DaVita-affiliated nephrologists with training on common home dialysis issues. Studies show that many nephrologists receive insufficient training and exposure to PD and HHD during their fellowship. Institute courses cover a variety of home topics, offer no-cost CME credits for DaVita-affiliated nephrologists, and are created by nationally-recognized experts.

Kidney Transplants

DaVita believes a kidney transplant is an ideal treatment option for eligible patients with kidney failure. Through educational and waitlist support programs, we aim to help our patients understand transplantation, join waitlists and be ready for when a kidney becomes available.

“Being on dialysis hasn’t really slowed me down at all because of the DaVita system.”
