Queensland Nephrology Advanced Training Pathway

The Queensland Advanced Training in Nephology is a statewide process and is supported by the Renal Heads of Department with advanced training accredited positions.

This centralised pathway will allow successful applicants to be supported through a 3 year training program including 1 year guaranteed training in a transplant service. There still remain opportunities to be an advanced trainee in nephrology medicine in Queensland outside of this process.

Applicants that are not successful securing a position on the centralised pathway are still eligible for existing advanced training accredited positions that are within Queensland using this process. However a position on a transplant service will not be guaranteed. Applicants can reapply every year to secure a position on the training pathway.


To be eligible to apply for an advanced training position, applicants must be:

  • a current advanced trainee in Nephrology


  • a new applicant:
