Kidney STARS (Students and Residents) Application

Applications for the 2023 ASN Kidney STARS Program will open in early summer 2023.

The goal of the ASN Kidney STARS program is to stimulate interest in nephrology careers by targeting medical students, residents, and graduate students with an interest in nephrology who have not yet committed to applying to a fellowship or pursuing kidney research.

In addition to tailored events and networking opportunities, this program provides travel support and complimentary registration to attend the ASN Annual Meeting during Kidney Week.

In order to be eligible for this program, applicants must be:

  1. A medical student, graduate student (including physician assistant or nurse practitioner students), or resident at the time of ASN Kidney Week in good standing.
  2. Enrolled in an accredited program or be a graduate student and enrolled in an accredited university.
  3. Interested in pursuing nephrology as a specialty, but not yet decided.
  4. Able to attend the entire meeting and all program events.
  5. Able to provide a CV and an institutional letter verifying status.
