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.Access Here
DaVita-affiliated physicians receive support within an integrated care framework that has been refined over 20 years and that has improved care coordination, clinical outcomes and costs for CKD and dialysis patients across all 50 states.
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.
