Elective Rotation: Nephrology (Brief) Elective
Contact: Emily Wilkinson
Location: Santa Rosa, CA
I spent two half days shadowing Dr Fritz of nephrology in both the peritoneal and hemodialysis units as well as in his outpatient clinic. He is a great teacher and has an excellent approach to care for patients. He also helped me frame when to refer patients and how to think about kidney disease. The time in the dialysis unit was also very valuable because it now helps me communicate with my patients now about their experience if they have ESRD, and gives me a better understanding of how I can help care for them.
