Dr. Robey received his B.S. with Honors in Chemical Biology at Rhodes College in 1981 and his M.D. at the University of Arkansas in 1985. Following graduate medical training in Internal Medicine at the University of Arkansas (1985-1988), he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in Molecular Physiology in the Laboratory of Kidney and Electrolyte Metabolism at NHLBI/NIH (1988-1991). He then completed additional graduate medical training in Nephrology (1991-1994) and a second postdoctoral research fellowship in Molecular Physiology (1993-1996) at Vanderbilt University. After nearly a decade on the faculty of the University of Illinois College of Medicine, he relocated to the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth in 2005, where he is presently an Associate Professor of Medicine and of Medical Education, a member of the faculty of the Program for Experimental and Molecular Medicine (PEMM), and Associate Chief of Staff for Research and Development at Dartmouth’s affiliate Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center in White River Junction. He is presently Co-Director of the Renal Physiology curriculum and an active participant in the Kidney & Urinary System (KUS) section of the Scientific Basis of Medicine (SBM) course.
He is an active practicing clinician at the White River Junction VA Medical Center, where he was the Founding Chief of the Section of Nephrology and Hypertension (2010-2014) and still serves as a staff physician and participates in the full spectrum of undergraduate and graduate medical education activities. He is board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Nephrology (ABIM) and is a certified Specialist in Clinical Hypertension (AHSCP-CHS). In addition, he is an elected Member of the Central Society for Clinical and Translational Research and an elected Fellow of the American Society of Nephrology (FASN), the American Heart Association’s Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease (FAHA), the American Physiological Society (FAPS), the National Kidney Foundation (FNKF), and the American College of Physicians (FACP). He is also an active clinician scientist with interests in both clinical research and the molecular mechanisms whereby metabolism influences cellular injury susceptibility and cell survival.
