What is the ASN Data Analytics Program?
The ASN Data Analytics Program supports informed, strategic decision-making and implementation of ASN initiatives and programs by collecting, managing, analyzing and synthesizing data relevant to nephrology and nephrology professionals.
The Data Analytics Program was created in April 2016 to advance ASN’s mission and strategic goals. The Program will continue to assess and enumerate knowledge and data resource gaps, as well as potential approaches to address these.
Among the core questions are:
How can I survey ASN members?
Please refer to the ASN Research Survey Policy. ASN offers two outlets for extramural researchers to access nephrology fellows.
What is the ASN Nephrology Fellow Survey?
Conducted in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine under Principal Investigator Stephen M. Sozio, MD, MHS, MEHP, FASN, the ASN Nephrology Fellow Survey provides leading indicators on the job market, practice patterns, and nephrologist demand. The study has been reviewed by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Institutional Research Board (Study # 00205206).
What is the ASN Nephrology GME Census?
As sponsor of the nephrology Match, ASN conducts an annual census of fellows in training. Excepting the number of 1st-year fellows reporting for training (required by the National Resident Matching Program) all data are used for research purposes only.
What is the ASN Data Subcommittee?
The ASN Data Subcommittee is part of the ASN Workforce and Training Committee, currently chaired by Stephen M. Sozio, MD, MHS, MEHP, FASN. The Subcommittee comprises multiple stakeholders—including Training Program Directors and Nephrology Fellows— who provide recommendations for approaches to identify and address data and knowledge gaps.
