The fellowship program in Hypertension started at the University of Chicago in 2006 and is a continuation of the program started by Dr. Bakris at another institution in 1993. It is designed to provide expertise in the area of Hypertension and clinical research to people who have completed their general medical training and are either contemplating or are in one of the following medical subspecialties: cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology or general internal medicine.
Those who are already pursuing one of these subspecialties at the University of Chicago may have one year of their training dedicated to this fellowship. Individuals who choose this fellowship will also receive credit toward completion of their primary fellowship, pending approval by the respective division chair. The central disease process studied in this fellowship is Hypertension, a disease common to all of these subspecialties.
