Clinical Associate Professor Stephen McDonald

Clinical Professor; Clinical Director; Director
Level 6 East Wing, Royal Adelaide Hospital, North Terrace
Adelaide SA, 5000


Professor Stephen McDonald holds multiple positions including, Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Adelaide; Clinical Director of Renal Services for the Country Health region of South Australia Health; and Director of Dialysis and Senior Nephrologist at the Central Northern Renal and Transplantation Service based at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. He also consults at the QE Specialist Centre.

In 1998, after completing clinical training in nephrology at various hospitals in Adelaide, Stephen worked on epidemiological research at the Menzies School of Health Research in Darwin. In this role, he examined relationships between early kidney and cardiovascular disease and markers of inflammation and nutrition in remote Aboriginal communities. Upon returning to Adelaide, Stephen commenced work in a post-doctoral position in the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry, where he later became Executive Officer, and a post with the Department of Nephrology and Transplantation Service at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. As a clinician, he provides care for in-and-out patients with all types of kidney disease, including acute and chronic kidney disease; people receiving all forms of dialysis; and those with kidney transplants.

Stephen’s research interests are in the epidemiology of renal disease and the use of registry data. He is also interested in acute and chronic kidney disease, severe hypertension, electrolyte disturbances, as well as dialysis and kidney transplant patients.
