    Introduction

    Welcome to the homepage for the Division of Nephrology at the Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital! On this page, you will find general information about the division, its mission, its major research interests and its training activities. The Division of Nephrology was founded in 1985 by Dr. Chung, Hsiao-Min, Associate Professor of Medicine, who served as Chief of the Division for eighteen years. In 2003, the hemodialysis unit was reconstructed and expanded. That same year, Dr. Chung was appointed as chief of the Department of Medicine and Dr Chou, Kang-Ju succeeded him as chief of Nephrology. After stepping down from the chief of Medicine in 2010 August, Dr. Chung was appointed as chief of the Medical Education and Research Department. That same year, Dr. Fang, Hua-Chang succeeded Dr. Chou as chief of Nephrology. There are seven attending physicians in our division now, they are Dr. Chou Kang-Ju, Dr. Lee Po-Tsang, Dr. Chen Chien-Liang, Dr. Chang Tsu-Yuan, Dr. Shui Tsu-Yang,  Dr. Huang Chien-Wei and Dr. Chen Hsin-Yu.The Division's three major activities are patient care, teaching and research. Therefore, our team of nephrologists provides thorough evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments for kidney diseases, electrolytes disorders and clinical toxicology in children and adults. Moreover, our training, clinical experience, and scientific research are driven by a sincere dedication to excellent medical care.
