Our division is comprised of 19 nephrologists and a biomedical scientist. Together, we provide consultative medical care to patients with kidney disease who have been referred to the McGill University Health Centre.

We work closely with highly expert nurses, dietitians, social workers, administrative staff, and other health care staff at the MUHC to provide our patients with the highest quality multidisciplinary care.

In addition to providing clinical care, our faculty members also play leading roles in medical research, medical education, clinical quality improvement, and patient advocacy.
