Dr. Abdel-Kader completed his undergraduate training at Washington University, before pursuing his medical degree at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson (now Rutgers Medical School). He completed his residency in internal medicine and chief residency at Brown University School of Medicine before specializing in nephrology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In addition, he has a master’s in medical education and is a doctoral candidate in clinical and translational science. His prior work includes characterizing individualized quality of life in CKD, examining symptom burdens in advanced non-dialysis dependent CKD and end-stage renal disease, and examining systematic interventions to improve CKD care delivery. Future research activities focus on investigating the potential benefit of using risk modeling with systematic interventions to enhance physician care and decision making in CKD.
