Raymond Hsu, MD, MAS, is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology. His research has focused on the epidemiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) including temporal population trends, cardiovascular sequelae, and kidney function decline after AKI. He has received NIH research funding since his nephrology fellowship at UCSF, during which he also obtained a Master's degree in epidemiology and biostatistics. He is an active ancillary investigator with the NIDDK-sponsored cohorts, the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) and ASsessment, Serial Evaluation, and Subsequent Sequelae in Acute Kidney Injury (ASSESS AKI). He is also experienced in working with big data from nationally representative hospital discharge data and through his collaborations with Kaiser Permanente, one of the largest integrated healthcare organizations in the country.


Clinically, Dr. Hsu sees patients with a wide spectrum of kidney diseases and maintains a panel of patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis. He also attends on the inpatient nephrology consult service at Moffitt-Long Hospital.
