Profile Description and Training plan:

I have completed a 1-year of fellowship training (02/02/2015-29/01/2016) with Monash Medical Centre, Monash Health, Australia VIC. Host mentor Professor Peter G. Kerr. My training experience pertains to in-patient training of general managements of renal emergencies, post op transplant care, procedures, daily ward reviews and consults. In addition, out-patient management of various renal diseases which involves attending weekly renal failure and glomerulonephritis clinics, combined clinics SLE & vasculitis clinics ( rheumatology team ) + satellite clinic visits under Monash Health. Twice weekly pre-evaluation and transplant follow up clinics and also attending weekly journal club, mortality & audit, CME, pathology & radiology meetings. I do visits to satellite dialysis centers under Monash Health Care System - intermittent HD, home HD, PD center care +/- discussion with patients and their specialist nurses with regards to the complexity of care. I have had the chance to join VTIS staffs members (Victorian Transplant Immunology Service) – exposures to laboratory work and methods of HLA identification and matching, understanding the Australian national-based recipient-donor matching system and volunteered to join as a sample for their PRA pool. I have also been involved in a retrospective data research and an RCT trial which is currently ongoing and have also been exposed to some clinical and laboratory PhD student works in the department. Apart from that, the diversity of races in Australia itself exposed me to a multitude of disease manifestations and management which adds on to my clinical experiences. 
Monash Medical Centre is rich in material and it has been a very fruitful year.
