Training Program Directors
This website is devoted to nephrology training program directors. The TPDs, through the auspices of the ASN, elect a Training Program Directors Executive Committee that works with all nephrology TPDs to meet their educational objectives, including (1) defining training requirements for nephrologists; (2) monitoring and extending interest in new funding opportunities for trainees; (3) increasing interest in nephrology as a career; and (4) promoting improvements in the quality of training programs in general. Details on the TPD Executive Committee are available here.
The material contained on this site represents the combined efforts of many TPDs, ASN staff and other ASN members. Much of the content was developed as a result of the ASN TPD Retreats and the various groups of TPDs focusing on specific TPD-related issues.
