Dr Lachlan McMichael is a nephrologist & early career clinician-researcher. He is a PhD candidate at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute and a research fellow at the University of British Columbia, Canada. His research program is focused on analysing international trends in wait-listing for kidney transplantation, developing administrative measures of eligibility for kidney transplantation in patients with kidney failure and assessing resource utilisation during evaluation for kidney transplantation.
Dr McMichael completed his medical degree at the University of Adelaide in 2013. He undertook Basic Physician Training at Central Adelaide Local Health Network and completed his Nephrology Advanced Training at the Central and Northern Adelaide Renal & Transplantation Service. He became a Fellow of the RACP in 2021. Dr McMichael has completed clinical fellowships in Nephrology and Kidney Transplantation at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada between 2020-2022 and completed a Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) from the University of Sydney in 2022.
Dr McMichael hopes his research will inform contemporary kidney transplant practice by reducing the current variation in approaches to kidney transplant evaluation and optimising resource utilisation.
