My experiences at Presidential Hospital exposed me to a wide array of medical patients, particularly those with kidney diseases and inspired me to pursue a future career as a nephrologist. Our residency training and renal department have encouraged research and I have been actively participating in research activities to enhance my knowledge. I am currently involved in a retrospective chart review evaluating the association of types of vascular access with anemia in ESRD patients and also about acute kidney injury in the ICU. I see myself as a clinical nephrologist in the future and I strongly believe in patient education, early detection, primary and secondary prevention of chronic kidney disease.
