About Me

Kai-Wen Chuang, M.D., received her undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley. She graduated with the highest distinction in general scholarship in 2004 with a major in Molecular & Cell Biology and a minor in Toxicology.

Dr. Chuang attended medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she first developed an interest and passion for pediatric urology. From there, she went on to successfully complete her surgical internship and urology residency at the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System (now Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine) in New York. In 2014, Dr. Chuang returned to her alma mater, the University of California, San Francisco, for her pediatric urology fellowship. During her fellowship, Dr. Chuang concurrently received formal training in epidemiology and biostatistics as she earned a certificate in Advanced Training in Clinical Research.

She was the first resident physician at the Smith Institute for Urology to receive a departmental teaching award for her exemplary dedication to teaching, and she was just announced as a recipient for the Great People Award, recognizing her contributions to the diverse UCSF School of Medicine Community even after her departure from the institution. Dr. Chuang has published in peer-reviewed journals and is an invited author for several urology textbooks of high impact.
