The Section of Nephrology runs the Nephrology Subspecialty Education Program. The section has 20 GFT and 8 non-GFT physicians.

The Section of Nephrology at the University of Manitoba comprises a large team of academic faculty members and over 700 interdisciplinary research, administrative and clinical personnel dedicated to providing outstanding patient-centered care, research, and education in the areas of kidney disease, dialysis and transplantation. The Section is fully aligned with the Manitoba Renal Program and Transplant Manitoba, and collectively manages over 2000 advanced stage CKD patients, over 1600 kidney failure patients on dialysis (380 on home dialysis, and over 290 in satellite hemodialysis units dispersed across the province of Manitoba), and over 700 prevalent transplant patients across its three main sites of operation (Health Sciences Centre, St. Boniface Hospital, and Seven Oaks Hospital). The section also runs general nephrology clinics (25 half day clinics per week) and provides on-site nephrology consultation to its 3 main hospital sites as well as remote telehealth support to all hospitals in the province of Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut. The section and its allied programs are leaders and innovators in areas of CKD and Transplant risk assessment, risk stratification, exercise programming in CKD, multidisciplinary care models, remote care delivery, and interventional nephrology.

The Section provides a productive and highly collaborative research environment, with internationally recognized expertise in the areas of translational, clinical, epidemiologic, health economic and implementation science in both native and transplant kidney disease. This activity is anchored by two research clusters in Renal Transplant and Systems Biology (Health Sciences Centre Campus) and at the Chronic Disease Innovation Centre (Seven Oaks Hospital Campus). The 10 core researchers in the Section collectively hold over $8M in peer reviewed research support, and publish between 40-50 peer reviewed articles per year, many in premier journals. Current research is broadly (but not exclusively) structured along the following themes: Optimal detection and prevention of CKD (CanSolve-CKD SPOR); optimizing outcomes and quality of life in CKD and in Kidney Failure; optimizing kidney transplant rates and outcomes and optimizing AKI diagnosis and treatment.
