Philosophy of Care

I entered medical school with many interests, but my degree in chemistry and prior work as a chemist made nephrology a natural fit. I enjoy providing both acute and chronic care for patients with renal conditions.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Deborah Stein grew up in the Boston area, where she completed high school and attended Tufts University, where she was a member of the swim team. After obtaining a degree in chemistry and working in industry, she returned to Tufts University School of Medicine where she completed medical school. She continued at Floating Hospital for Children for residency and then Boston Children’s Hospital for training in Pediatric Nephrology. She is board-certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Nephrology, and has been a member of the faculty since 2011 when she completed her training.

Dr. Stein is an active member of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology as well as multiple other professional societies. She has worked with Open Pediatrics to develop online simulators to teach medical professionals about dialysis in children, which won the 2016 American Society of Nephrology Innovations in Kidney Education Award. She was named to the Boston Combined Residency Program Faculty Teaching Honor Roll for the 2017-2018 academic year.
