Our faculty prides itself on its commitments to patient care, medical education, and scientific achievement. All physicians are active in educating medical students and physicians in training. As Mount Sinai physicians, we have access to the latest innovations in patient care that become available through clinical and basic science research. Research funding for members of the Division of Renal Medicine is supported by prestigious organizations such as the National Kidney Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Our research is devoted to improving the quality of life for patients with kidney disease through the development of novel approaches to disease prevention and treatment.
