About Namrata G. Jain, MD

My passion for working with children stems from my grandmother, who raised me in Guwahati, a small city in northeast India, while my mother and father came to study in the US. I would help my grandmother cook for, then bring food to children on the streets; we also provided care and clothing. I then moved to the US when I was four years old. My route to medical school was circuitous. I completed a degree in a biomedical engineering, with a focus on designing hip prostheses and heart valves. As I worked with the hospital’s inpatient teams, I became drawn to the patient care side of medicine. Currently I am the medical director of the pediatric kidney transplant service at Columbia Univer...
My passion for working with children stems from my grandmother, who raised me in Guwahati, a small city in northeast India, while my mother and father came to study in the US. I would help my grandmother cook for, then bring food to children on the streets; we also provided care and clothing. I then moved to the US when I was four years old. My route to medical school was circuitous. I completed a degree in a biomedical engineering, with a focus on designing hip prostheses and heart valves. As I worked with the hospital’s inpatient teams, I became drawn to the patient care side of medicine. Currently I am the medical director of the pediatric kidney transplant service at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. At the heart of my practice, I think of all my patients as “my children.” I myself have two young kids. I want parents to know that, with each medication and procedure I recommend, I am trying to put myself in their shoes. I understand that it can be scary to be referred to a specialist and aim to take the time needed to explain all the details. I welcome questions from parents and want to make sure I am always providing the care your child deserves. As medical director, I am focused on quality improvement efforts for a largely underserved patient population, including patients seeking asylum and who may be undocumented. I am working to expand community and academic partnerships. In addition, I am focused on educating medical students, residents, and fellows – both with teaching sessions and contributions to medical research. My research interests focus on improving kidney transplant outcomes as well as risk factors for chronic kidney disease in pediatric patients who have undergone heart and bone marrow transplantation. I am the site investigator for Improving Renal Outcomes Collaborative (IROC) as well principle investigator for a Pediatric Nephrology Research Consortium study, Vesicoureteral Reflux in Pediatric Kidney Transplant.
