Welcome to the Renal Fellow Network.


My name is Nathan Hellman and I am presently a Nephrology Fellow at the Massachusetts General/Brigham & Women’s Hospital Combined Fellowship Program. I am in the midst of my first (clinical) year, and with about 4 months left to ago I am realizing that although I am becoming an expert at throwing in a femoral dialysis catheter and starting CVVH at a moment’s notice, there is still a very wide body of nephrology knowledge for which I’ve barely scratched the tip of the iceburg.


This blog–and we’ll see where it evolves from here–is intended to provide a forum to discuss interesting Nephrology cases, scientific papers, and other topics germane to nephrologists. To begin with, I plan to post one entry per day myself about something that I have learned recently with the goal that it is something that would be useful to a 1st-year Nephrology fellow like myself.


  1. REading this message, I don't think Nathan had expected the blog he started in 2008, would become so popular, not only amongst 1st year fellows but also the attendings, students and other!

  2. I, too, just came across your blog! Keep it up! It's nice to know I'm not alone in my trials and tribuations! Haha!

  3. I just came across your blog and I am very impressed! Great work! I've book marked it =D
