Message from the Division Chief
Joseph Mattana, M.D.
Chief, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension
The division also has an ACGME-accredited fellowship program providing an extensive exposure to clinical nephrology with a group of highly dedicated nephrologists with superb clinical, teaching and mentoring skills coupled with an innovative learning program and research experience. We also provide educational experiences in nephrology for residents and students through an elective which provides broad-based exposure to multiple aspects of nephrology in the inpatient and outpatient settings to give them a representative exposure to the field of nephrology and to help them learn what nephrologists do in their careers.
Research is an important part of our division’s activities. Our clinical research includes work that is making important contributions to our understanding of salt and water metabolism, the use of clinical decision support to improve the care of patients with chronic kidney disease and many other areas including collaborative studies with other specialties. As part of the division’s commitment to education, we also carry out research exploring novel educational methods. Our division also carries out collaborative laboratory investigation with scientists at Winthrop in the area of vascular biology and the kidney. Finally, we have an active clinical trials program which studies a number of novel treatments in patients with kidney disease.
