Since my beginning as nephrology doctor, I participated to different national and international congresses and symposiums, and each year, I tried to gain more medical knowledge by attending to prestigious academic courses. Because of my constant interest of patients’ quality of life, together with colleagues from my Department, I developed a new renal replacement therapy method, a concept that was warmly appreciated by international and national nephrology community.I am an active member in various national and international journals’ editorial board and medical associations (ISN and ERA-EDTA), because I believe only working together and sharing information we could contribute to medical progress. As a proof of my constant work as doctor and researcher, I published many articles regarding renal pathology, potential life-threatening complications and new treatment concepts for improving patients outcome.In the future, I hope my academic career and research will better and I would be able to improve Romanian medical system and discover new therapy techniques for slowing chronic kidney disease natural evolution.

He subsequently moved to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Presbyterian hospital for his Internal Medicine residency. Dr Sandhu’s research interests include social factors effecting access to renal transplantation and establishing preferred modality of dialysis access. In addition, Dr Sandhu’s group at the Harvard Medical School developed the Social Adaptability Index (SAI), used to accurately identify patients at higher risk to suffer from health care disparities. Through several key publications, they have shown that index is valid across different subsets of populations like patients with end stage renal disease, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, in addition to the general population. Dr Sandhu’s also showed that patients who were married or divorced had a higher likelihood of getting wait-listed for transplant and eventually getting a transplant, compared to unmarried patients. In addition, Dr Sandhu showed that education can alleviate, at least partially, some of the disparities experienced by minority ethnic groups. These findings have had significant implications on allocation policies used by various transplant programs across the country.
