For nearly half a century, Dr. Conley has practiced as a pediatric nephrologist in the Department of Pediatrics at UNC. In 1966, he joined the department as the director of the Pediatric Nephrology Clinic. His tenure as director of the clinic ended in 1971, but he continued to participate as a faculty member by providing clinical management for pediatric patients. He also served as a mentor and teacher in many areas of pediatric nephrology and was appointed director of the Pediatric Nephrology Outpatient Teaching Program. Dr. Conley is the only pediatrician to serve under all UNC pediatric chairs.
