Training Program Directors

Training Program Directors

This website is devoted to nephrology training program directors. The ASN Workforce and Training Committee 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. 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.

NRMP Revises Match Participation Agreement

NRMP revised the Match Participation Agreement (MPA) governing communication between programs and applicants. The MPA has been expanded to read:

Programs are not authorized at any time during the application, matching, or onboarding processes to request that applicants reveal the names, specialties, geographic locations, or other identifying information about the program(s) to which they have or may apply.

Benefits of Participating in the All-In Nephrology Match

ERAS Access

Nephrology training programs participating in the All-In Nephrology Match will be listed in, and have access to, the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ASN is again asking programs to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to provide ERAS the information it needs to verify programs/tracks participating in the AY 2024 All-In Nephrology Match.

Programs that enter into and return the signed MOU to ASN by Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. EDT will be listed in ERAS and able to receive applications using the ERAS Program Director Work Station. Those entering after April 30 will be listed, but ERAS will NOT inform candidates of any additions after the June 2024 opening. Nonparticipating programs will not be listed in, nor have access to, ERAS and will be excluded from the benefits of participation.

Benefits of Participation

The ASN Match Oversight Task Force recommended, and the ASN Council has approved, excluding nonparticipating programs from the benefits of participation below. Programs assessed as nonparticipating with ASN's All-In Policy will be excluded from the following benefits of participation.
