Fadi Tohme, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor
Department of Internal Medicine
Division of Critical Care Medicine
Division of Nephrology

I obtained my medical degree from Saint Joseph University in Beirut in 2010. Subsequently I moved on to complete my residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa, followed by fellowships in Nephrology and in Critical Care at the University of Pittsburgh (UPMC) from 2014 through 2017. I then continued my academic career at Washington University in St. Louis, where I held the titles of Assistant Professor in Nephrology and in Anesthesiology between 2017 and 2019. I returned to Lebanon in 2019, and currently I work as an intensivist in the medical/surgical ICU at LAU Medical Center-Rizk Hospital and as a nephrologist. My main research interests are related to the epidemiology and the use of biomarkers in acute kidney injury, as well as the use of point-of-care ultrasound both in nephrology and in the ICU. Additionally I have a strong interest in medical education and in the teaching of communication skills to students, physicians and other healthcare personnel. My clinical areas of interest include peritoneal dialysis, continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
