Dr. Bea Concepcion grew up in the Philippines where she attended medical school. After graduation she moved to the U.S. and completed her Internal Medicine residency and Nephrology fellowship at RUSH in Chicago, and a Transplant Nephrology fellowship here at Vanderbilt. She went home for a couple of years after fellowship before returning to Vanderbilt in 2013 to join the faculty as a transplant nephrologist. She is a clinician educator and regularly works with medical students in the clinic and on the floors. She also teaches physical diagnosis to the 1st years which is something she enjoys immensely. Lately, she has dived into the world of #SoMe and Nephrology education – please follow her on Twitter @KidneyBea_n. Outside of medicine, she enjoys rooting for her favorite tennis player Rafa Nadal and her favorite team the Chicago Cubs, going out for dinner/drinks and a movie with her husband, and travelling around the country and the world.
