Dr. Amit Rajput began his medical career as a part of the Leadership In Medicine Program at Union College, where he obtained two Bachelor’s Degrees in Biological Sciences and Economics. His passion for healthcare compelled his travels abroad, studying global healthcare systems around the world. He cultivated this passion by obtaining a Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A.) in Health Care Administration from Union Graduate College and his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from Albany Medical Center. He completed his residency training at NYU Winthrop Hospital, during which he served numerous roles, including Assistant Chief Resident, House Staff Quality Committee Chairman, and Clinical Instructor for the Stony Brook School of Medicine. He further specialized his training through a Nephrology Fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Dr. Rajput’s passion for teaching landed him the role of the Director of Nephrology Education for TriHealth Good Samaritan Hospital, where he works with Internal Medicine residents to build their nephrology knowledge. In addition to his multiple lectures, he has published his research in several renowned nephrology journals and has given presentations both at the local and national levels. To further expand his skill set, Dr. Rajput has recently completed a training program in Interventional Nephrology and has started working at the Dialysis Access Center of Cincinnati.
In his spare time, Dr. Rajput enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 young sons. He is a sports enthusiast and his favorite sport is baseball. Although he never fulfilled his dream of playing for the NY Yankees, he now enjoys playing for the TriHealth softball team.
Dr. Rajput is proud to represent The Kidney and Hypertension Center, where he promises to use his passion for health care and medical knowledge to provide the best care for his patients.
