“At St. Luke’s, I was able to practice my skills with autonomy and benefit from the mentorship of experienced faculty. Knowledgeable and supporting physicians on the subspecialty services ensure the balance between patient care, learning and research. I was able to present my research at a national level and was able to acquire a nephrology fellowship position at the academic institution of my preference. Overall, it’s a great place to learn.”
