Ionel Alexandru Checherita
Department of Nephrology, Urology and Transplant Immunology and Alergology
I am Associated Professor at the Department of Nephrology, Urology, Transplant Immunology, Dermatology and Alergology, “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy Bucharest, Romania. In addition, I am Medical Head of the Department of Nephrology and Dialysis, “St. John” Emergency Clinical Hospital, Bucharest, Romania. Since my beginning as nephrology doctor, I participated to different national and international congresses and symposiums, and each year, I tried to gain more medical knowledge by attending to prestigious academic courses. Because of my constant interest of patients’ quality of life, together with colleagues from my Department, I developed a new renal replacement therapy method, a concept that was warmly appreciated by international and national nephrology community. I am an active member in various national and international journals’ editorial board and medical associations (ISN and ERA-EDTA), because I believe only working together and sharing information we could contribute to medical progress. As a proof of my constant work as doctor and researcher, I published many articles regarding renal pathology, potential life-threatening complications and new treatment concepts for improving patients outcome. In the future, I hope my academic career and research will better and I would be able to improve Romanian medical system and discover new therapy techniques for slowing chronic kidney disease natural evolution.
