In recent years, new diagnostic and therapeutic tools have emerged in the management of patients with kidney diseases. This course is designed to provide the practicing Nephrologist with a complete understanding of the optimal management of chronic kidney diseases. The focus of this course will be to discuss the pathophysiologic and clinical advances in the major areas of Nephrology including glomerular disease, fluid and electrolyte disorders, hypertension, dialysis, and renal transplantation. Through discussions of well-recognized medical complications and recommendations for optimal care, along with case discussions and the use of the Audience Response System, you can expect to receive an exceptional update to your existing skills.

Multiple Educational Formats for Optimal Learning 
Course material will be presented in a distraction-free environment, through multi-media formats that include:

  • Lectures
