The Workforce in Critical Care Nephrology: Challenges and Opportunities

Academic Article


  • The substantial burden of acute kidney injury and end-stage kidney disease among patients with critical illness highlights the importance and need for a specialized nephrologist in the intensive care unit. The last decade has seen a growing interest in a career focused on critical care nephrology. However, the scope of practice and job satisfaction of those who completed dual training in nephrology and critical care are largely unknown. This article discusses the current practice landscape of critical care nephrology and describes the educational tracks available to pursue this pathway and considerations to enhance the future of this field.
