Home Clinics Internal Medicine Nephrology Clinic



Nephrology Clinic was initially formed as an institute in 1972, by the Council of the Faculty of Medicine in Niš. A year after the adaptation works were finished and new non-standard equipment was obtained so that the Clinic could be provided with the personnel from the Internal Diseases Clinic. Each subsequent year brought richer content and increased responsibility of the collective. As the number of dialysis patients increased over time, the need for further capacity expansion and new equipment grew from day to day.Professional training of the staff was a constant concern of the Institute. This kind of liability, in an adequate form, is mandatory for all the workers of the Institute, nurses, legal and financial offices and unqualified support staff. In 1977 first steps were made towards the preparation for kidney transplantation, for which the Institute established professional and organizational cooperation with other institutes of Clinical Center Niš. On November 3, 1973, the Institute admitted first patients on dialysis. In the following years the amount of work increased significantly, in terms of both outpatients and patients on dialysis. Self-management agreements committed the Institute to provide professional, organizational and technical support in the spirit of the proclaimed "open door" policy to all who seek the cooperation with the Institute. Further examination of the problem of epidemic nephropathy and adoption of new development plans were in the focus of the collective in the following period.
