Brigitte Schiller, M.D.Chief Medical Officer
"The best thing about my job is the privilege and opportunity to live my passion: improving the care our patients receive and thus enabling them to live better lives. I’m drawn to this profession because compassionate, individualized patient care is a fundamental human right. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, listening to opera and enjoying the endorphin rush after a good workout."
Brigitte leads Satellite’s Quality and Medical Policy Strategy and oversees the clinical strategy and development of the organization to improve patient outcomes. She directs the organization’s applied research efforts and serves as chief of staff for Medical Directors and referring physicians.
Brigitte is recognized among the United States’ most respected experts and researchers in the area of ESRD. Even with her well-earned accolades and industry awards, she retains a compassionate, individualized approach to patient care, which she developed during her training in Europe and the US as a private practice nephrologist and primary care physician. Brigitte also serves as a Consulting Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Nephrology at Stanford University and is frequently invited to present at national and international meetings.
Brigitte graduated summa cum laude from the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, Germany and completed residency and research fellowships at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.
