Dr. Brewster is a clinician educator in the Department of Medicine. She did her undergraduate work at Yale college and then went to Dartmouth Medical School. Her Internal Medicine Internship and Residency was at Yale New Haven Hospital. Following this, she did her fellowship at Yale in Nephrology and stayed on as faculty in the Nephrology Section.
As a clinician-educator, Dr. Brewster's focus is primarily on the care of patients with kidney disease and on the education of the fellows and housestaff. She functions as the Program Director for the Nephrology Fellowship program and is the Firm Chief of the Peters Medical Firm, a medical house staff teaching firm dedicated to the specialized care of patients with kidney disease.
In her clinical practice, she is a general nephrologist, seeing patients with chronic kidney disease or electrolyte disturbances, but has a subspecialized interest in the care of pregnant women with underlying kidney disease or hypertension. She practices both in the outpatient Yale Nephrology clinic, as well as on the inpatient acute nephrology consultative services. She is dedicated to the care of patients with end-stage kidney disease, and so sees patients in the outpatient dialysis clinics locally - with a more focused interest on home dialysis therapies.
