Dr. Meera Joseph, MD

Dr. Joseph attended Western University, earning a concurrent Bachelor of Engineering Science and Bachelor of Science, followed by an MD and internal medicine residency.

She is currently pursuing a Master of Medical Education degree at the University of Dundee and is the co program director for McMaster's Geriatric Nephrology fellowship program. 


Dr. Joseph’s clinical interests include improving a palliative approach to care for patients living with end-stage kidney disease and addressing and preventing geriatric syndromes in seniors living with kidney disease. With colleague Dr. Mona Sidhu from the Division of Geriatric Medicine, she is leading the first collaborative geriatric-nephrology clinic in Canada, providing faster access to geriatric care for patients with renal disease and addressing geriatric syndromes in the context of kidney disease. Together with Dr. Pyne, she has also started a Conservative Renal Care clinic at SJHH for patients with end-stage kidney disease who do not wish to pursue dialysis.
