ISN offers a Special Fellowship in collaboration with the Hong Kong and Chinese Societies of Nephrology. This Fellowship scheme is designed to enable Chinese Fellows to train in selected host centers in Hong Kong.
Three short-term fellowships will be made available each year. Each grant consists of three months of training that ISN and HKSN will support with US $6,500.

1. Reasonable command of English
2. Reasonable exposure to nephrology, dialysis, and/or transplantation
