Thank you for your contributions!

Dr. Pat Fleet

We are delighted to share the news that the “Dr. Pat Fleet Endowed Fellowship Fund” will be formally established effective October 1, to support our nephrology fellowship program.

We have recently exceeded the threshold of $100,000 that we needed to raise to establish this endowed fund at UW Medicine. Nearly 60 different individuals from around the country have donated very generously to make this happen, and the donors have included UW faculty within and outside the division of Nephrology, UW alumni of Nephrology and other training programs, and family, and friends of Pat Fleet. We are particularly grateful to Drs. Bessie Young and Bob Harrington who partnered in outreach efforts for fundraising.

We anticipate that we will name the Chief Fellow in the Division of Nephrology as the “Fleet Fellow” starting July 2022 and the distribution from this endowment will be used for academic enrichment of our fellows. Our aim is to continue growing this important fund with an eventual goal of raising $500,000, so that we can further expand educational opportunities within the division.
