Braun and Fresenius are the more popular ones especially with the relatively newly built clinics.

On a more important note, you need to be more concerned of learning about the clinical aspect of your training over the technical one. With your training, it will be 80% clinical and 20% technical so the brand doesn't really matter. Because whatever brand of machine you will use in the future, the clinical principles will all be the same.
