Kidney STARS (Students and Residents) Application

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 but have not yet committed to applying to a fellowship or pursuing kidney research.

In addition to tailored events and networking opportunities, this program provides complimentary registration to attend the ASN Annual Meeting at Kidney Week, and complimentary membership to the society.

The ASN Kidney STARS program dates are Thursday, October 22 – Saturday, October 24, 2020. Program highlights include opportunities for small peer group interaction, a Q & A panel with nephrology experts, and virtual mentoring. Please note that participating in the Kidney STARS program during Kidney Week 2020 Reimagined will not impact applications to the program in future years.
