Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy listening to music and singing, trying out new restaurants, watching movies and hanging out with friends!

Why did you choose nephrology?

I have always loved nephrology right from my med school years. Renal pathophysiology is very exciting and challenging and so is its application in clinic practice. I enjoy the combination of outpatient and inpatient care of complex patients which we routinely do.

What are you looking forward to during your fellowship time here?

Learn nephrology at one of the most reputed fellowship training programs alongside great faculty!

What do you like best about Chapel Hill?

I love the vibe this area has. Great people, restaurants and awesome weather!

Welcome to the UNC Kidney Center, Roshni!
