Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, Department of Medicine (Nephrology)
Matthew Abramowitz, M.D., M.S. completed his medical education at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and internal medicine residency at Montefiore Medical Center, where he was a Chief Resident. He remained at Einstein/Montefiore for nephrology fellowship and earned a Masters in Clinical Research through Einstein’s Clinical Research Training Program. He is currently Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology & Population Health at Einstein.
Dr. Abramowitz’s research focuses on chronic metabolic acidosis, skeletal muscle function, and functional impairment in patients with chronic kidney disease. He is the recipient of a Career Development Award from the Einstein/Montefiore Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, a Carl Gottschalk Research Scholar Grant from the American Society of Nephrology, and a K23 Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health.
