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.
