About me

Dr. Chi-yuan Hsu is a specialist in kidney disease. He cares for adults who are hospitalized as well as those visiting the clinic. He is chief of the UCSF Division of Nephrology.

Hsu's research on acute, chronic and end-stage kidney disease includes investigating strategies to improve outcomes for patients with these conditions. Questions that arise in the course of caring for patients have often motivated his research.

He completed a residency in internal medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in nephrology at Massachusetts General Hospital.
